I figured that I'd post some of my recent pics of Jupiter, since I've been pretty quiet on the forums lately.  I've finally become comfortable with adjusting the exposure and playing with the histogram; no post-processing done at all. 
ETX 125 PE, w/ LPI





I also have a pic of Jupiter with 4 of the moons visible.  Is it possible to "darken" the background sky in order to make them stand out better?  Or is it a matter of stacking a lot more images to bring them out?

Nice, and now that I have A scope back, I can't wait to get my camera set up and attempt the same.

Karemrazim, are those with or without a Barlow?

Keep on stacking and adjusting the exposer.

Nice image Cannon.

Any specifics about the image?
Scope?
Exposure?
Etc?

This will be my next attempt once the weather cooperates.

It was a 10" LX200 using an LPI with kernal on Med. I think it was at least 35 exposers at the highest time exposer I could use then playing with the hisogram so not to over expose. This was taken last August. I was not to keen on saving Data on what I was taken at the time. This time I got a 12" and a DSI-III and as soon as I get it set up I will surely save all the info on what I shoot.

The top two pics are with a 2x barlow, the bottom is the LPI by itself.  Because Jupiter is still pretty low in the sky, I haven't had much luck with getting a decent focus; it's neat to watch through the EP, but imaging with the wavy atmosphere doesn't work all that well.

I discovered that myself last night while trying to put the new PE through it's paces.

Once I get it all set, I'm really looking forward to starting to image again, and Jupiter is top on the list.

Keep up the good work!
