Jupiter

I took another stab at Jupiter after reading some more tutorials on stacking in Photoshop. These were generated at ISO 800 with 1/60sec shutter speeds

This time instead of using prime focus methods I used eyepiece projection + a 25mm eyepiece. This gave a bit better zoom but I feel I’m pushing the scope to the limit here…

This first shot is a single frame. I used photoshop to adjust Levels/Brightness and Contrast to get this view.

Stacked

Next I tried stacking 7 shots together to see what that would do. I’m not sure if this is really any better than the above? It’s brighter for sure and the details look a little bit clearer.
