Question about magnification in planetary imaging

Hello everyone



I have a question about planetary imaging. Please forgive me if it is a

rookie question, but I guess all we need to go trough the learning curve

process.



How can be done video processing and capturing from Canon T1i DSLR in MaxIm?



On the other hand, what would be the optimal magnification to do planetary

imaging? I assume it will depend on the scope (I own a 6" f10 SCT), the

camera (Canon T1i) and the focal length used. I've tried before to image

Saturn, so I recorded live view video captured using a 2x barlow and 5x

magnification.



The image in the video was clear, but after the processing in Registax it

became very bright and grainy, so it wasn't good at all. Any way, my

question is because I don't know if with that setup magnification was too

high and maybe that was a cause. Should it be better to image just 5x

liveview without the barlow? or just with the barlow without the 5x?



Finally, has anyone done planetary imaging with the HD video capability of

the Canon T1i?



Thank you very much,



Alfredo
