Re: light pollution filter vs. no filter

have read just about every review/opinion on their use. The messaging out there is a mess- mass confusion, debating, etc. The variables are just too many to give a simple direct answer.

Thanks Bruce. Because of Jupiter's fast rotation (I think it is around 0.6° per minute), long videos do not help as the result would be a smearing of the detail. WinJupos allows for several shorter videos to be combined with the software compensating for the fast rotation. The realistic limit seems ...

Captured June 24, 2020 around 01:30. Planets at 15°elevation, seeing=shocking (2x Barlow a waste of time). A session to test out my WinJupos workflow (to compensate for Jupiter 10 hour rotation). Sets of 10 videos captured between 00:45 and 01:45, last set nearest meridian used as planets brightest ...
