Sky conditions were excellent last night! No clouds, 4/5 transparency and 4/5 seeing. Jupiter was extremely stable so I took some .AVIs of it using the Philips SPC900NC webcam with my LX200. The photo to the left is the best image after post-processing.

The image below shows the difference between the final stacked image, and the image after it had its layers stretched in Registax. It really pays to spend the time messing with these little filters and settings to draw out as much detail as possible in the data available in your stacked image.
