Imaging Having taken stock of a new long focal length telescope that I am going to use purely (possibly) for planetary imaging i decided to make a concerted effort to have a pop at Jupiter as I have been very lax this year, mainly due to the weather. To capture this image I used my guide camera that doubles up as a planetary camera and the camera was set to record a video of 120 seconds. I then load the video in to Auto Stakkert and about 5 minutes later an image comes out. It does this by taking the individual video frames and stacking them just like DeepSkyStacker stacks image files. I then processed the resulting image in PhotoShop as normal.
