Jupiter taken with DFK21

Jupiter January 2014

This was taken on Sunday 19th January 2014. I took it on my Altair Astro 8″ RC with a 2x Televue Barlow and an Imaging Source DFK21 (Colour Camera).

It took me a while to get the options in the ic Capture Imaging Source software correct, but then I stacked it in Registax 6.

I imaged for about 50 seconds at 60fps. But maybe only ended up using about 500 frames, the seeing was not great.

Jupiter November 2011

It’s been a while since I imaged Jupiter, and I have never imaged it since I got my Skywatcher 120mm ED refractor.

This was taken with a mono DMK21 camera and stacked in Registax 6. It was taken using a Televue 2.5x Powermate. I did try a 5x Powermate but the image was too blurry even once stacked and sharpened using wavelets.

It’s a small Jupiter, but perfectly formed!
