2012-11-12 Jupiter, great red spot slightly visible

Equipment used:
Zhumell Z10 10″ Dobsonian telescope
DIY EQ platform for tracking
Canon t2i 550D DSLR in movie crop mode, 640×480 60fps
Prime focus + 2x 2″ Barlow
Best 10% of 60s video stacked in Autostakkert2
Post processed in Fotoxx and Gimp in Linux

My timing was just a bit off! An hour or two earlier and the great red spot would have been much more visible. The images were processed two different ways – one was quick and dirty by stacking and processing the best 20% of all RGB channels combined, and the other (smoother, better color) was processed by separating the RGB channels prior to stacking, then re-combining them to full color RGB after.
