Set up last night look at the Venus-Saturn grouping (which is actually best tonight -Saturday). Took a few shots. This is the only one I have processed so far.

Outstanding detail John! Good seeing, eh? Wrong direction for the Venus/Saturn shot though... a little tracking error? ;-)

Nah, just processed the Jupiter shot first because I could tell when shooting that the seeing was pretty good.

Here's Venus:

All my Saturn shots were too underexposed so no joy there.

Great Job!!!

I have a scope...Meade Starfinder 8".

I know what I need as far as camera adapters but how/why do you use the 60+ exposures? How does this work?

Thanks...

Cool man!!! I don't think the common folk know what you captured here!

Nice job.

Ken, a couple of years ago, I wrote up a brief explanation of the "stacking" process. See it here.
