I had some time this evening to photograph Saturn and play with the settings. Everything was taken using the 3X barlow and the 127mm scope. Seeing was excellent, and the transparency was just as good. I'm going to overdo it a little tonight, as I captured 10 AVI's and they ALL came out VERY nice. I used different levels of digital zoom in the camera, and it didnt seem to matter how much I used.
Most of these images, I used 1/30 sec exposure, 10 FPS, 0 gamma and juse enough CCD gain to get a decent image (about 1/4 the way up).
Also I took some in greyscale, which I'll post first.
Now here are a few with the color turned on:
I really should buy a blue filter so I can experiment with RGB combining in photoshop. I still havent got the hang of that. When Jupiter comes up to the point where I can work with it at night, I'll try photographing it with different color filters and see what happens.
Anyway, I'm really happy with this batch of pictures. Either I'm getting better or conditions were really good tonight and with the addition of that new barlow, I think my imaging will get better still.
