Jupiter a couple shots
Posted 18 August 2008 - 09:19 AM
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.

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.
