As Jupiter is just about visible for me I had a first go at imaging the planet with my ZWO AS120 mono with manual filter wheel.  The seeing was not great but nontheless have stacked the three  RGB images- separately in Autostakkert and then used wavelets in Registax and imported them to PS with a view to merging using channels.  I must be missing something very obvious as when I open 'Channels' and go to the drop down menu 'merge channels' is greyed out?  The images are in PS as 16 bit tifs, RGB images.

You should not merge channels.
Just put respective RGB files in each RGB channel, just like in DS imaging.

That sounds simple enough Tapio - thanks will try that.
