    Default Saturn 5/26/2019



    This was taken some time ago along with Jupiter but just had the chance to process it properly. Isaturn needed to get 8 or 10 90sec videos to combine but only able to get 3 due to clouds.

    This is a de-rorted image from 3x90sec videos. each with 4500 frams at 50fps, gain 22. best 70% stacked. total 9450 flames.

    thank you. yes winjupos doing a remarkable job. its a must for planetary stuff. i'm glad that i tried it without delaying.
    its very easy to use with Jupiter due to auto detection when aligning images. for Saturn, you have to do it manually. I learned it today.
    It was the reason the processing was delayed for Saturn even though it was taken 2 weeks ago.
    btw the date and time its asking will be auto filled if you are using firecapture. its the reason i have switched from sharpcap to firecapture. also it has simple autoguide feature to keep the planet in the frame.

    here are the videos i have followed for Jupiter and Saturn. these are short and straight videos
