I got a couple shots of Jupiter this weekend.

I was camping in the mountains just on the other side of Mt. Wilson, CA. Was a warm night with a full moon. Would have been better without that light but here we go. Also, I didn't realize that I was shooting images with Fits on my Color DSI III. So I just ended up with Black and White images.

This is my third attempt at Photography with the DSI camera. So far I like the DSI III better than the LPI. Just need to get a power adapter for my car so I can run my laptop for more than 1 1/2 hours. :)

I took my SN8 and LPI out on the 16th to get this shot.  The full moon made it look like day.

Hey guys,
What are you all using to finish up your photos?

I finally got out last night and tried imaging Jupiter. Like my attempt @ Saturn, my images seem to come out too red'ish.
This is just a sample that I cleaned up a bit. Just a single image. Nothing stacked. And of course, I haven't mastered the focusing. Need to make a new mask I think. The one I made I think the holes are too small. Once I put it on the scope I see nothing. Nada. Zilch.
I'm using an ETX125-PE.
.25 exposure in Envisage. I thought of even shorter exposure which I tried but nothing good came of it.
I had to play with offset and gain as well as balance, just so I wouldn't get an image with a big white splotch.

I use GIMP to post process.  You can get a little more detail using an unsharp mask filter and color curves, but I think that you focus is likely the problem.  I don't understand the red color though.
