Jupiter through a 60mm refractor


Today I played with the NexImage CCD camera. This image of Jupiter is derived from an AVI file of 3244 frames. The NixImage CCD camera was connected to a Meade Polaris Model 60-EQ (f=900mm, D=60mm) coupled with a Televue 1.8x Barlow lens. The telescope is one of the cheapest refractors that you can get. Accordingly, the chromatic aberration (red and blue edges) is terribel. Nevertheless, the 2 cloud bands came out nicely. Image processing was done by first centering and cropping all frames using the Ninox software. The stacking was then done in Registax 6. Taken on November 3, 2011.
