First night in back garden for what seems like forever, had an interesting session.

Set the C8 on Jupiter while I dabbled with the star adventurer mini / Nikon D5300 / 105 2.8 macro.

Tried too many things as failed miserably on focus with the D5300, Jupiter was just clearing neighbours roofs ...

Got quite disheartened by 3am so took cameras off and had a peak at M13 before packing up.

Absolutely beautiful ! C8 with ES 14 mm.

Thought I'd try imaging it but only had the Nikon with William optics flattener attached ...

Managed 20 x 15 seconds as hadn't polar aligned for Jupiter.

Good luck all with opposition on the 8 th

      I'm currently on my annual leave in Italy and the sky has been clear all day with no air turbulence.
      The telescope is out - of course - and I managed a session before dinner.
      I thought about sharing some photos taken with my phone and a couple of sketches.

      Jupiter imaged on 17 August 2019 using a C8 SCT, Skyris 618C at f33.

      Hello All,
      Sharing with you my best images of Jupiter and Saturn for this year.
      I haven't had the luck of a High Pressure system with no wind speed yet, but on the 17th it was as close as I had for planetary this Jupiter/Saturn season.
      Not my best images of the gas giants ever but ok IMO.
      I'm happy to see that the GRS seems to be repairing itself, last time I imaged Jupiter, the border around the GRS looked like it was breaking up so perhaps it'll be around long enough for my kids to see in the eyepiece.
      Captured at f33. Images consist of  the best 15% frames from 13x60sec @ 60fps for Jupiter and 13x120s @ 30fps for Saturn, derotated in WinJupos.
      Clear Skies,
      MG

      Here is a EEVA-style image of Neptune and apparently its largest moon, Triton. I had been trying to image planetary nebulae before aiming the gear at Neptune, and noticed a faint smudge below the severely over-exposed planet. It was possibly easier to see at the time than on the processed image attached (between planet and arrow).  It seems to match the position given by Sky & telescope's Triton Tracker.
      At around mag 13.5, Triton would normally be beyond the reach of a C8 used visually even in ideal conditions.
      Image is inverted, taken 12Aug at 22.40 UT.  CPC800,ASI224MC, flip mirror. Gibbous moon.

      Hey all, I just started imaging the planets again after a long break. I have just purchased some new equipment a ZWO ASI224MC and skywatcher ADC (replacement for SPC900). I have read a lot about image quality depending on the height of the planets. The image shows top row images I took in Dec 2012 SPC900 ( looks like the world did not end 🙂 ) and bottom row July 2019 224MC. Would the difference I am seeing in quality be down to just position or am I not setting the new camera correctly? Thanks for any more image examples or help.
