    Mars 1st September - but very poor!

    You have noticed as well , being In the same neck of the woods so to speak. U must be looking at a different Mars to me.

    Join the club Dave. I was out last week & I could just about make out the poles of the planet.

    Humble Mars

    Very good. @ least you have got some detail on your image. Last week I could see nothing @ all.

    Saturn 31st July

    Very good image . Having a big scope, really does come into its own on the planets.

    Two faces of Mars

    This one below was the year before which is a bit better. Mars.tif

    This was taken of Mars last year with my old camera which came with a built in I/R filter. This was about the best I could get believe it or not.

    I have only got a colour camera , so I cannot capture different colour channels like you . I will have to give it a go , with out the I/R filter .

    I presume it is better to leave off the IR cut filter for Mars. It is a must for Jupiter .

    Thanks for that. Give me some idea when to set up the gear.

    I forgot about that. The planet does rotate. Been looking @ the moon to much. Beam me up Scotti.

    The planet was very red . The image its self looked quite sharp. Just very little detail on the planet apart from the ice caps.

    Very good . Loads of detail there. I was out the other night & could see very little detail due to the storm.
  15. I live in a town with the same problem. I can just about see the planets , moon , & a few stars , that is it I am afraid. Lugging all this gear to a dark site is not really on.
