Mars, Jupiter, Saturn (May 28)

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!

Been a long time since I've been on here, but I thought I'd share some photos I took last night.

First, Here's Mars, taken with a focal length of 2000mm through my Explorer 200p...

An attempt at a higher zoom (5000mm focal length) - a bit blurry, but it still shows some detail.

Mighty Jupiter, taken with a focal length of 5000mm, really showing the difference being high in the sky makes!

Planet Saturn... even low down in the sky, it still manages to look gorgeous! (Focal length: 2000mm)

And another version - composited with a photo of moons Rhea, Dione, and Tethys.

I wish I could've zoomed in further with Saturn, but 5000mm was simply too much (requiring long exposuress). Perhaps I'll have to invest in a 3x barlow lens or something...

Just had another look at the Mars one, and I've managed to reduce the noise + increase contrast. Still some annoying artifacts though.
