Today is the day of this year's Jupiter opposition. Weather forecast was rain. Unexpectedly it was quite clear, but strong wind gusts. I waited for a while until Jupiter was higher up in the sky and looked on the satellite cloud images. Clouds were approaching, but slowed down. I set up my gear and started.
I believe, that there are still some mechanical issues, because I cannot get the images as sharp as I was used to get them. Latest Update : 11 November 2023



The best Jupiter out of 35 videos on 3 November. Left first treatment - Center second treatment - Comparison to my best image from 2015 (BW cam+2*Barlow).
03 November 2023 - 2001 UT - 75%/4000 frames at 0.7ms/frame @210 fps gain 130 - QHY5III715C - Mak MK67 150/1800mm



This is a single image of 0.7 milli-seconds exposure time out of the video.



Here is the raw stack of 3000 images (this is the raw and unsharpened stack and size reduced to 75%)


First treatment with PIPP - AstroStakkert3 - Gimp


Another treatment with better results only with AstroSurface - a new software.

03 November 2023 - 1945 UT - 450 of 606 frames at 2ms/frame 65 fps - QHY5III715C - Mak MK67 150/1800mm
The video was taken with full frame and a frame of 1200x800 was cropped. For final treatment I reduced the upper first image to half the size.
From left to right the moons: Europa, Ganymede and IO.
With careful work I could make another version showing more details and the moons more clearly.
