I am a newbie on this forum, this is my first topic here but I would like to show you my recent planetary imaging results. I started to catch the planets with a dedicated planetary camera last month but never thought that a small 4" Maksutov can show such small details. The equpment I used:
SW 102/1300 Maksutov 2.25x Q-turret Barlow lens QHY5L-II color camera EQ-3 GOTO mount All the images were taken on differend countrysides in Hungary. I hope you will like it
Also, please share your images taken with similar OTA, I'd like to learn some tricks from others as well
Jupiter's 15 minutes of rotation. Captured with Firecapture, processed in AS!3, Registax and WinJUPOS (2020.08.21)
Saturn, 1 hours stacked with AS!3, processed in Registax (2020.09.05)
Mars, 3 hours of rotation. Captured with Firecapture, stacked with AS!3, processed in Registax. (2020.08.22)
Mars again, 5 minutes stacked in AS!3, processed in Registax. You can see also Olympus Mons and Arsia Mons next to the terminator (2020.09.05)
Finally, a result of a Hungarian star party where I learned how to use properly my equipment This time I borrowed an ADC for Saturn.
My first image here in the lounge! This April was a great month for Astrophotography. My main challenge is moisture in the sky (90% humidity) and of course as I image from a bottle 8 zone, light pollution. At 11 pm everything is most often soaking wet and I normally call it a night. But the weather in April was better and I managed to get a couple of hours of good data every other night.

My "export to jpg" process definitely needs improvement!
Acquisition: 130mm Apo @ f/4.5, ASI1600 mm pro, unity gain, Astrodon RGB, SGP and PHD2
Processing: Astropixelprocessor, Pixinsight, Photoshop
I'm trying to get a photo of Jupiter and Saturn with my Nikon D3000 DSLR but I can't get anything clear. I attached the kind of photos I'm getting with my camera. They end up being too bright and no distinguishable features show up. Is it even possible for my Nikon to get photos of planetary objects like Saturn and Jupiter?
