Some planetary attempts

With the moon high and bright I thought I would take a look at Jupiter with my Canon 550D on the Newtonian again. Though the seeing was far from perfect it was good enough to try for some images. With the Red Spot nicely on view the first image was with a 2x teleconverter attached to the camera and the second was with the further addition of a 2x Barlow as well. Both images are from around 400 frames stacked in Registax though I have much to learn about using the software. With Jupiter well placed I will be making some further attempts when deep sky is difficult....With Christmas lights appearing in a month's time it will probably get a lot of attention for a few weeks (if the clouds stay away!)
