    Cool More takes on Jupiter (22-Jan-2019 @ 06:12 UTC+3)



    Hi all!

    I could not wait until Jupiter starts rising up in the sky before midnight, so I woke up early today and started taking some shots at Jupiter!

    Having already prepared the setup from the previous night I just had to start up the computer and point the telescope out of the window to the planet.

    I took multiple videos and pictures, but ended up with only one final result that is good and satisfying (at least for how I managed to get the recordings )

    Please let me know your feedback and thoughts!

    Specs and setup:
    Celestron Omni XLT 102 (4") f/9.8
    Camera: ZWO ASI224MC, with 3x barlow lens
    Camera exposure set to 89ms, and 229 gain (that's the best I was able to get)
    Used Baader FK filter and stacked another UV/IR cut filter (just for testing )
    Took multiple 60s videos @ 11fps, and ended up with a 715 frames file
    Processed using PIPP, Autostakkert3, and Registax
    Did more processing using GIMP which showed up the moons
    Tracking was motorized however I did manual DEC corrections (as usual since I'm doing this indoors)
    Took this through the home's window

    Had some videos for Venus as well, but I doubt my little 4" will show any details, so I just stacked them and let Autostakkert sharpen them and I got a happy ending for those videos
    Telescope(s): Celestron Omni XLT 102mm (4") f/9.8 refractor w/ upgraded GSO focuser and RACI finder + QHY MiniGuideScope
    Mount: Computerized CG-4 | Eyepieces: 25mm, 14mm, 10mm, Omni 2x barlow, GSO 3x barlow
    Cameras: My Google Pixel XL camera, ZWO ASI224MC-S, QHY5L II-Mono | Binoculars: Oberwerk 11x56
