Spent some time capturing this evening with the 10" Meade 2120 operating at f/15 with my AS485MC.  This 25% stack of 12,000 frames capture at GAIN = 275 10ms exposure.  I spent most of the early evening working on collimation (close but still not quite right yet.)  Focus after collimation was a challenge since seeing wasn't great but towards the end of the imaging I got closer there too.  Jupiter was well past the meridian but this time however.

This was on my watch list, but it ended up cloudy here - thanks for the share!  Really nice pic.
