Greetings all again,
I spent some time outside again last night experimenting with the AVI capture of my 40D with the liveview. I think this has a lot of potential for those who haven't gone into CCD territory yet and a bit budget conscious. Have a look at Malcolm's posts (mswhin63) to see what this avenue of capture has the potential of!
Anyway, this is Jupiter and Venus with the liveview AVI done through my LXD55. By the way, this my first ever Venus capture and boy was it difficult to get with all that turbulence in the atmosphere!
I am still wrestling with Registax and all of the these are done by Regi but if you look closely, Jupiter has what appears to be a processing/stacking circle inside roughly 90% of diameter of the image. Has anyone seen this before? Maybe I am hitting the wavelet too hard but I something tells me it's not the wavelet but perhaps the way it is aligning.
The 2 Jupiters are using the same rig but different exposure and different harshness in the processing to emphasise the mystery "circle"
If anyone has any ideas, I would be much grateful. I used a single point alignment (centre of gravity works very poorly when Jupiters satellites are in the frame).
Oh, apologies for the dodgey looking satellites in these posts. I haven't worked out how to "round" them a bit to make it a bit more visually appealing. These are basically unprocessed except for the wavelet filter in Registax. Photoshop is on my radar for targetting some skill acquisition
. There's also a black dot on the lower right. Initially I thought it may have been dust but I think it may be the shadow of one of the satellites. Taken at about 10:30pm lastnight.
Thanks for looking
