I don't do planetary imaging very often.  But with Jupiter so bright, I though I'd give it a try with my LX-90.

I'm going to add a 2X barlow and try again and see what I get.  I know that pesky work thing gets in the way.  I'm jealous of those whe have retired and can image whenever the skies are clear.

I created an AVI and used RegiStax 5 to break out the best frames and stack them.  I ended up using about 500 frames.  The wavelet filter in RegiStax is crucial to sharpening the image.  I did some final adjustments to the color in PS CS3.

Vomit:

Yours is a great image.  Go back into RegiStax and rework the wavelets.  I usually nudge up 2, 3, 4 and 5, leaving 1 and 6 alone.  It always surpises me how much you can pull out with wavelets.  I also lightened mine because usually I tend to over saturate the color, bleeding out detail in the process.  Aren't you in da UP?  Next time I'm visiting my mom we should get together and compare notes.  Sounds like we're on a similar track.

Thanks for the props.  And yes I am in the UP......Wells, to be exact. Let me know when (if) you are coming up.  I would be glad to get together.
