Jupiter in 2021

This image of Jupiter was captured by Peter Branson on the evening of September 9th 2021. The image was obtained by combining and processing 750 separate images from a 5000-frame video. The video images were taken with a ZWO ASI224MC-Cool high frame rate camera, operating at about 50 frames/second, through a Hutech IDAS light pollution filter attached to a Celestron C9.25 Schmitt-Cassegrain telescope. The telescope arrangement was mounted on an NEQ6 mount. The video was processed in AutoStakkert and then the final image was processed and sharpened in RegiStax6. Image © Peter Branson.
