Description

Result of a crude attempt of Jupiter to show its rotation, from horribly chaining a 3x and 2x barlow for fun. 57 minutes total video chopped into 2.5 minute clips, using mostly default settings in AS!2 and fiddling with wavelets in registax.

Kept the best 20% for each clip, approx 1800 frames, for around 41k frames total. Seeing was ok, not sure how to estimated that on a scale of 1-5, the wind was starting to pick up during recording. Focus was tedious thanks to a not absolutely perfectly collimated scope and some sag introduced from the long focal chain.
