    Cool Jupiter and 4 moons just now! 23-April-2019



    Hi all!

    Was testing my new shiny mod for the telescope (OnStep controller) and I thought to take the chance and get some videos for the moon and Jupiter...

    Processed Jupiter videos, but still the moon ones for tomorrow... As for what I got for Jupiter... I guess this is my best so far! Not sure if this is related to the new motors and tracking from OnStep but this is the first time I get to see this view!

    Tech stuff:
    Scope: My little lovely Celestron Omni XLT 102 (4", f/9.8)
    Camera and optics: ZWO ASI224MC, 2x barlow, Fringe-killer + UV/IR cut filters
    Capture specs: gain 10, exposure 400ms, captured 5x60s videos using SharpCap
    Processed with PIPP, Autostakkert, Registax, then did some extra color fixes in Gimp and enhanced the moons visibility as well.
    As usual from inside the house through the window
    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
    Taking photos from the house's window!

    I don't do any planetary imaging myself. But, as far as I can tell, that is an excellent capture of Jupiter. Nice detail.
