...and A LOT of atmosphere. This was taken at 11.30pm last night with Jupiter just 10º above the horizon. It was my first attempt at stacking a video and I'm chuffed I got anything that resembles the planet. To make out the great red spot is amazing. My 5yr old's face lit up when he saw this and is now looking at You Tube videos about the planets. 

 

I was amazed by the view of Jupiter and Saturn last night through the Mewlon. To get the best views I have ever had, when both were so low in the sky, shows what a fabulous scope a Mewlon is.

Thats a great shot! I have the same camera! Did you do a video crop mode?

No, it's a bit of a faff to be honest, but I brought the video (a 4k file) into PIPP, converted it from .mov to .avi and cropped it in there, then staked the resulting file in Registax. It would be simpler if I could work out how to get the camera to record in .avi mode. 

 

To be honest, I don't know quite what I did...I was in a Teams meeting at the time...but it gave me something to do!
