Recording 2 minute avi instead of 1 min significantly increases frames which results to more detail in post processing. However blur due to Jupiter’s rotation becomes noticeable if one record longer.

In this current set up atleast, it rotation has little effects on the image which was captured at f10.

Images were captured using PAS’s Celestron Nexstar 8se and Philips Toucam. Acquired via Sharpcap, processed using Registax V5 and CS3. Observed from Malabon City, Philippines
