Saturn near opposition   Leave a comment

Telescope ETX 125
Location, a rooftop in Manhattan, 11pm. January 29
Saturn, f/30, 1/500 second exposures, toucam 740k, 800 frames, processed in Registax.

The wavelet settings for the 1:1 are around 30.

This is what a single frame looks like actual pixels.  The original was 640 x 480, and the planet moved around quite a bit.
Since I wanted every frame available, I set the quality to 0 when aligning.  Later, I dropped the last 100 frames as the wind was shaking the telescope too much, and registax could not track accurately enough.
