Jupiter - First Light with OSC

6 posts in this topic

Th Northern Belt looks like it has a darker shade swirling off to the left. Not sure what that could be but its been a while since I shot this object. 

The OSC seems okay. This is only a stack of 130 frames. I've got more AVI's but Registax doesn't want to process anything larger than a Gig so I'll process those inside me thinks. Jpeg compression has caused some pixelation, I'll re-upload this shortly.

Have you tried playing around with Autostakkert?  I believe it will work with larger files, a lot of imagers prefer it, (I don't.)  You do have to preprocess the avi first, (has something to do with the frame numbering.)  I run it through PIPP.

Nice first light Ray, was that without a barlow? Been awhile since I have done planetary except solar, but have used Autostakkert ...worth a try ......didn't know about PIPP thanks Tim

I did download this ages ago but I haven't experimented with it. I'll have a crack though, thanks for the tip mate.

No barlow yet mate. I was more interested in just seeing the result. Its pretty good for a $200 OSC. It's certainly reinvigorated my will to do planetary. I might look at some monochrome cameras as well now. I'll try a barlow out tonight.

I used Autostakkert and a barlow for this. Seeing was atrocious though, but I kept on because I wanted to practice with Autostakkert. Stack is 700 frames. Can't wait for the seeing to stabilize to try this again.
