Jupiter - March 27, 2016

It never ceases to amaze me how a night of good seeing can produce bad images and yet another night of apparently good seeing might not. The images below were all shot last night in Movie Crop mode. The darn wind was gusting but in-between gust the seeing looked very good with Jupiter rock steady. That is more than I can say for my mount in the wind. True to shooting movie mode it can grab good frames from a bad set. These images were taken from video clips of 30 to 50 seconds at 60 fps. I stacked anywhere from 3 to 8% of the best frames in Registax and processed enhanced them in Photoshop.. They are not exceptionally good but some of the best I have been able to achieve in several years of trying.
