Jupiter May13th C9.25 New Process
« on: 09:26:19, 14 May, 2017 »
Jupiter. 23:20 May13th,
 Celestron C9.25 + 2.5x barlow @ F26
5000 frames with my ZWO 120MC.
Io and its shadow were racing off the edge so had to rush to get focussed and capturing.
 stacked with AutoStakert, wavelets in Registax final in Photoshop.
Had this scope a couple of years but still not sure if I've nailed collimation, problem is my arms aren't long enough to reach the collimation screws while looking through the eyepiece, gonna need help one night, Roger Brooker :-) So far have only collimated with the camera which is a frustrating process.

Update processed again in different way.

Stunning, Lee  :big_clap:
I'd say you've got collimation spot on  :thumbup:

Top stuff Lee!
I really don't think collimation is an issue. The 9.25 SCT proving it's pedigree as planet killer once again.

That's one of the better images of Jupiter. That I have seen, this apparition.
Given the planet position, in the sky. You've done very well to capture all that cloud detail.

The C9.25 is an excellent scope.

I want to use mine. When skies clear.

Very nice, Lee... very nice indeed....

Have you heard about WinJUPOS?  If not, give it a look - not the easiest piece of s/w to use but persistence pays off with it... especially good if you use a long video for a planet - it will help de-rotate so you can use more the the best frames...

There's also an excellent tutorial on cloudy nights.... here

Thanks.
Yes Phil I've tried it but never really got my head around how to use it, I will have a look at the tutorial you supplied

Excellent capture , shadow very good in the transit ! Amazing how well that little camera works but a C9.25 is a great scope too !
