Me and a friend took these pictures 10.12 using an Meade LX200 ACF 16", and even though we struggeled with the focus i felt we got it pretty good in the end.
There are definatly som details to be seen , but they are blurry.
The conditions were so so , but i was hoping for more , but i'm a newbie at this ,so?
Both Jupiter and Saturn are low on my location in the south of Norway (58 N - 07E).
Jupiter is 15 000 frames stacked , and the video was about 2 minutes long , which i have read is the max, length you can have on jupiter.
Det biggest picture is 15% used and the smaller one is 5% used.
Saturn is 20 000 frames stacked and both pictures is 5% used.
I was using Zwo asi 224 , Zwo ADC and Sharpcap pro.
For editing , i used Pipp , Autostakkert3 , Registax6 and Gimp.
They are heavily edited.
So what is causing the blurryness , is it the conditions , focus issues , lenght of the video (to long)? or maybe a combination ?
16" is a big telescope , so bad conditions may even get worse in it , i did not check collimation.
This telescope is not mine , it belongs to my astronomy club .
I'd like some help and advice from you all on what i can expect , and if there is something i can do diffrent.
I also tryed Winjupos , but it got even worse.
I do have the stackings if someone likes to try.
