    Default Jupiter from my balcony



    Here is a run that I have shot yesterday night. Seeing was good, so I figured I'll stay up late and try. It is the best 30% of a 90 sec record (around 700 frames). Recorded with DBK21 at 30 fps with a 10" Meade LX 50 at F25. Stacked with AS2 and post processed in CS5.
    Here it goes:

    And here it is with 1.5 drizzle

    Nice pic!!! I stayed out all night and watched the red spot move across the planet. It was quite relaxing.

    I watched it that night too, it was beautiful ! I kept moving the scope back and forth between Jupiter and Orion's nebula besides a few other objects. The GRS was awesome. Great pic and thanks for sharing !
