Well after all of the help and guidance. This is my attempt at Jupiter. I am still trying to learn how to process the image. I can't believe the headache I got. why can't it be easier. I guess it wouldn't be as much fun.

Good job... imaging is a steep learning cure, but if you keep track of your earliest images and compare as you go along you'll see rewarding progress. Planets are difficult, jupiter can have "fall off" at the edges as the atmosphere "goes around the corner" giving the impression that its not quite sharp at the edge.

You could probably process some fo the red out of this one to give the light belts a whiter look. try experimenting with different effects.

cheers

thanks all.... i am using the dsi II pro with a lx200 10 inch. i found out that once you zero in on jupiter slew over to a small faint star and focus on that then move back to jupiter. make sure you are collimated

Did you use a barlow to get Jupiter that size?

I am not able to use a barlow. I cant seem to get anything I like. I might have resized it a bit.. been awhile.
