jupiter_20160514_012836_Exposure=74.png-annotated

A poor session of imaging Jupiter in the evening. Gets dark very late now… not worth imaging before 21:30 EDT. Otherwise I get strange colour balancing going on with RGB balance because of the background sky colour.

Imaged 12 runs from 21:28 to 21:49 EDT and then the microfocuser ran amuck, so called it a night.

Still using the televue x3 barlow but cannot get sharp focus. I ramped up the exposure to x5 and tried to focus on a Galilean moon but even that was not sharp.
