Job 9:9

Job 9:9-10
9 He is the Maker of the Bear and Orion,
the Pleiades and the constellations of the south.
10 He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed,
miracles that cannot be counted.

A couple more Jupiter Pics - 10/14/11

Lubricated the dobsonian bearings with silicone lube last night and took the scope out and shot thru the clouds.  Had a few breaks in the cloud cover to get a couple of AVI's.  I am also experimenting more with different color and gamma settings, once I learned how to actually use those features in registax.

I actually only was able to take about 3-4 useable AVI's, but I'll post a few images with slightly different processing that seems to bring out a little more detail.  This AVI consists of about 200 useable frames.  Shutter speed 1/100 second with the image drifting across the field multiple times.  I used the 2X barlow with the QC4000.  Scope was the 6" Meade Starfinder dob I acquired for $22 at a state auction.  The black frames and blurred frames were edited out using VirtualDub.

These 2 are from the same avi.  Notice the pinkish spots right of center in the northern edge of the EZ.  It seems I saw those previously as well.

This image is from a shorter, different AVI, consisting of about 75 stacked frames.
