Jupiter Sep 21

I'm a bit behind, sorry. These are my best Jupiter images to date. Quite pleased with them. The colour is good this time with better seeing. One of the outbreaks shows up very well.

GSO 10" F4 Newtonian at F16, Svbony SV305 camera, Svbony 2X barlow stretched to 4X, NEQ6 Pro modified.

Sharpcap, AS!3 and Photoshop.

P.S. Did some experimenting running low gain + long exposure (42ms) verses high gain + shorter exposure (10ms). The end result seem to be the same. Higher gain ends up with more noisy frames and doesn't seem to pay off. At least for this session. Takes longer to process too.

Practice and good seeing. The Newt is a real pain to use for planets though because of where the focuser is.

Very good images you've captured Kevin, lots of good detail and nice colours Getting good seeing conditions makes a whole lot of difference, goes without saying really.
I'm still waiting for clear skies with seeing better than 5 or 6.
