Observing Jupiter from the roof window

Last week, the seeing was surprising good here in South Germany, so I decided to observe Jupiter with my Takahashi Mewlon 210 telescope. The views of this planet were stunning indeed, even at the high magnification of 300x using a Takahashi 7mm LE eyepiece. After this observation, I decided to attach my Imaging-Source DBK21 color webcam on the telescope and to take some photos. I made several avi files. Each one of them had 1GB of data, so it wasn't an easy task to process them with my 5 years old 2GHz PC.
