About this image

Video capture of Jupiter in 45s sequences, processed in AutoStakkert!3, and wavelet sharpened in Registax (v6) using a newer less "contrasty"  setting. The seeing conditions on this night were excellent, with a jet stream speed of 1m/s reported on Meteoblue - a speed so low and I haven't seen in more than three months. Some final sharpening and denoise using PhotoShop and Topaz DN. By far my best processing to date and will go back and redo earlier ones, though rarely do I get such good data to process.
