There is a lot of bad advice in this video. I have since made better videos on planetary imaging. Click here to get to them:

In this video I show you how to make a nice picture of the planet Jupiter using the NexStar 5SE telescope and Celestron's NexImage 5 camera with a quick tutorial for using iCap and RegiStax software.

At the end of the video I show how to use the histogram feature to make the dark background even darker by cutting off (zeroing out) the really dark pixels (on the left side of the histogram). You should also move the red line on the right side of the histogram inwards to brighten the image. Because I didn't do this the gamma function was able to do essentially the same thing. It makes more sense to do this via the histogram though. I show how to do this in my other video "Lose the green" starting two minutes into that video.
