The 22 April was a good fine night, I was setting up my 250mm F5 Newtonian for some galaxy work and was using Jupiter as a target to align up my scopes. I noticed that the conditions look good so took a few images of Jupiter.
The image below is at F12.5, so not ideal for planetary imaging.

The rest of the observing session was a right-off as I had problems with my goto alignment !

DFK618, 50% X 3000 FRAMES @ 30-60FPS in R5/R6, X2.5Powermate = f12.5

Was out last night (01 may) but the planet was a crazy quivering blob with no hope of any decent images !

It cleared too late here last night so didn't bother.
Haven't imaged Planets for a while but new laptop (Secondhand) and new SSD hard drive impressed with 90+ fps during capture.
Oh and new Powermate 2.5x also.
