Jupiter | July 2021

I am learning how to process images using a dedicated astronomy camera. I tried recording a Jupiter video in RAW format. RAW needs to be reconstructed to form color images in a process called debayering. When debayering, select the correct matrix for your camera (RGGB in an ASI 533). If your images still show the bayer (grid) pattern even after debayering, try other configurations such as GBRG or GRBG and see if it removes the artifact (the capture software may have recorded with the incorrect bayer configuration).

Jupiter imaged on July 27, 2021 with a 4 inch f/9 refractor, 4x Barlow, and an ASI 533 camera, processed in SIRIL.

Saturn | July 2021

Saturn taken with a small 4 inch (100 mm) f/9 refractor. This is the first light image of a newly-bought ZWO ASI 533 I received last week.

Equipment: ASI 533 camera, Sky-Watcher Equinox 100ED, ZWO UV-IR filter, 2 stacked 2x Celestron Omni Barlow lenses, and Kenko NES mount.

Processing is done in IRIS, 800 frames stacked.
