One of the problems with videoing Jupiter is it rotates quickly limiting videos to around 2 to 3 mins maximum. This new(ish) software aims to solve this by de-rotating the images. So you can now shoot say a 10 minute video and correct for rotation. Alternatively, and probably more practical, it can de-rotate a set of already stacked images. They can then be added together.
I have not tried it yet but there is a youtube video introduction to it.
This introduction doesn't cover de-rotation but it does show some stunning simulations of events such as transits/occulations etc - great for planning imaging sessions. Despite its name it is not just Jupiter either. Looks like it will become essential software for planetary imagers!
For those interested in imaging and image processing with DSLR, CCD, webcam or film.
