Planet Trio from last night

Recommended Posts

I don't think my attempt at Jupiter from last night was well accepted so I re-edited it. I lost some detail working on it so much.

Last night I imaged the 3 planets. Mars and Saturn were captured from about 3am almost directly overhead. I had to revert back to the standard 1.25" gear as the 2" gear wouldn't allow me the altitude because of the top of the mount on the Celestron Nexstar 8i. Software used Autostakkert!2, Registax 6, Rawtherapee and PaintDotNet. Captured using Sharpcap and the white Xbox 360 camera.

 

My first attempt and capture of Mars, 1500 stacked frames from a 3 minute video. It's a shame I couldn't get the colour right last night.

I've only done a handful of Jupiter. This is my best to date, 1000 stacked frames from a 4 minute video.

Saturn and Mars are great.  Have yet to see them with my own eyes.  I'm afraid bed is a must as work is a must too.  Am waiting for later in the year.

      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?

      Some quick results on Mars from the morning of 20 July. The seeing was good and Mars at a good altitude.  Equipment: CPC800, ASI224MC with IR-cut and IR-pass filters, ADC.
      The surface features show more clearly in infrared.  I forgot to try a Barlow lens on this small target, but have not had any good results with the cheap Skywatcher x2 Barlow in the past.  So these images are kinda small; I was going to x2 them in Photoshop but am having a problem with my network just now.  
      The surface detail checks out as Syrtis Major and Hellas with the southern icecap.
