Processing Jupiter Data From Start To Finish

This tutorial series by Damian Peach, walks you through the processing of a set of Jupiter image data from start to finish. In the first part of this series, Damian deals with the raw videos that are captured during a live session, and need to be processed to create the image stacks. This step is only needed if you do a planetary Live Session. If you work with Pro Datasets, then you can skip Part 1, as the images in Pro Datasets are pre-stacked by Damian.

The data used in this tutorial are provided as a Pro Dataset in the Telescope Live platform. You can also download the associated dataset by clicking on the download link below.

To start practicing, follow this tutorial and download a Jupiter Pro Dataset from your Dashboard.

Is there a step missing or something im doing wrong? When I attempt derotation, following the same settings and steps as Damian, I end up with a blurred mess.

Yes I found this as well the program appears to be correcting in the wrong direction with the default settings. I had to set the mirror option on the optional tab to get the first step to work. However I’m still not able to do the RGB derotation yet… need help from Damien…

Both the Pro Datasets contain the image stacks in the IR685 and B filters.....while in the tuturials Damian refers to LRGB images....the editing concept is the same ? How does the color come out from the images of the ProDatasets ? Thanks

Hi Alf, to create the green channel you need to create a synthetic image by averaging the IR and B images. Dan will cover this bit on the next tutorial, and we will also publish the LRGB dataset used in this tutorial!
