Planetary imaging showcase 2015

Recommended Posts

Please use this thread to showcase your best images captured during 2015. Just one post per member but you can include up to 5 images if you want.

The thread is for all imagers novices and advanced. 

Please keep details to a minimum - scope and camera possibly along with a few comments.

The thread needs to be packed with images so please don't respond to the postings

2015 was my first year of 'proper' imaging, but the combination of a 150PL, x2 Barlow, Microsoft Lifecam and an IR filter helped me make a good start:









Neptune (& Triton, just!) at the right angle of the triangle.

These are my only captures from this year. Back in April I managed a few runs on Jupiter with my Altair Astro Planeta 250 Truss Cassegrain and ASI120MC at Native F18.

Wow, I can't believe I missed the showcase threads until now.

Lets see what I can dig up.

Actually it was my best year so far in terms of getting better planetary results which I put down mainly to the ASI120mm being a better performer than my other cams.

Shame though I don't have a lot to choose from but here goes......

All imaged with a Skywatcher 150PL and ASI120mm, possibly a DMK41 for one of the images, maybe.

Possibly my best ever Jupiter, not sure.


Sorry about the cropping. :D


Obligatory Saturn, tougher than I remember.


So here is a double moon transit in 3 channels, I think it was probably taken on January 2.


This one is not the best pic but it's of the triple transit last year, conditions were not optimal.

Here is my best of 2015.

All images taken with SW 130/900 newton and qhy5L-IIc on eq2 mount (SER recording, AS2! stacking, Registax wavelets, iMerge for moon mosaic)

Thought I'd revive this thread with my 'Covid Collection'. All images captured Between 1st April and 6th August this year with Fullerscope and Altair 224c or 290m plus APM 2.7x barlow (at various powers). Now I have goto functionality on my EQ6 I will have a pop at the ice giants in the next couple of months and add them to this.

I know it's says 2015 but as there are no later showcases I thought this Jupiter animation I made from 2016 deserved to be on here. I corrected the field rotation in winjupos.

90 mins rotation taken with 10" Dob, ASI 224mc, 3x TV & ADC :
