Jupiter Saturday February 14

The seeing wasn’t great, which is an understatement, but I managed to get this.  7ms exposure, best 20% of 4000 frames stacked. Sharpening in Photoshop. I could tell from the start that my focus was good, sometimes it is hard to be sure, and the seeing would settle down between bouts of 20 mph wind. This front was coming in. I tried series of 3ms and 1ms videos but while sharper they were too grainy from having to pump up the gain. Maybe I’ll be able to shoot all 7 planets this year.
