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:

Venus:

Jupiter:

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.
