Ghost of Jupiter - NGC 3242

Taken with my 12-inch Dob and EQ platform and ZWO ASI294 MC camera from my home. These new cameras are truly amazing.

So from that log it looks like your frame stacking a video file, is that correct? Which is how (in EAA mode), 294 works best i believe. If so, what software are you using?
