Video of Jupiter Rotation of April 19 (c9.25)

Postby Marco » Tue Apr 25, 2017 11:28 am

Hi everyone, I finally processed all the footage taken on Jupiter the night of April 19 from my home in Singapore with a C9.25 @ f/25 and a ZWO ASI-224MC. In total I took 49 movies of 90 "one organized by 3 sequences every about 11 minutes. Each video contains about 7,500 frames, which were first selected and stacked with AS! 2 (averaging the best 4,000 frames each) and then derotated and combined with WinJuPos to create 16 master images of 12,000 frames each. Then I used Registax 6 for wavelet processing and converted the images into Maps with WinJuPos, stacked to create a unique map with the visible surface during this session. The resulting 15-second film covers 3 hours of shooting (from 14:40 UT to 17:40 UT), or about a quarter of the planet's rotation. The resulting uncompressed AVI video was about 1.5 GB, then converted to a 5 mega MP4 and uploaded to YouTube, unfortunately with a noticeable drop in quality.

(To download the video in better quality MP4 = https://www.dropbox.com/s/z6gvo5nnhpmzc ... 7.mp4?dl=0, let me know how you see it, I'm still trying to figure out how to optimize the Settings for compression).

The whole process was a lot of work but it was fun and worth it.

I hope you will like it

Clear skies

Great Marco! Did you manage to catch any Galilean moon transits during the period? :)

Awesome! Final effect is stunning! Thanks for sharing that. I am a beginner but I hope that one day I will manage to record things like that :)

Hi Airconvent, no there were not. I have however taken some images on the main galilean moons but 9 inches are too little to get much details out of them..
