Thanks...

Ken, a couple of years ago, I wrote up a brief explanation of the "stacking" process. See it here.

Nah, just processed the Jupiter shot first because I could tell when shooting that the seeing was pretty good.

Here's Venus:

All my Saturn shots were too underexposed so no joy there.

Outstanding detail John! Good seeing, eh? Wrong direction for the Venus/Saturn shot though... a little tracking error? ;-)

Amazing :)
