Astrophoto: Jupiter and Galilean Moons – 10/09/2022

Jupiter and the 4 Galilean Moons. Shot at Full Moon evening with APS-C and 4500mm focal length.

It was an evening with Full Moon and forced to use my APS-C camera when i thought i could try to make a photo of Jupiter and its 4 Galilean Moons. One of the basic steps was, that i needed two videos. One with brightness fitting to Jupiter and one with brightness fitting to the Moons.
Both videos were then processed as usual in PIPP, AutoStackert and Registax. The final combination was done in Affinity Photo.
