Mega Cheap Planetary imaging with help from Damian Peach + Astrobiscuit video

Hi Stargazers,

After a lot of work and help from the great Damian Peach I managed to get some really good images of Jupiter Mars and Saturn despite a total spend of just £100... and I made another bonkers Astrobiscuit video about it which I hope you enjoy. Mr Peach really helped me pick my nights to image and the other big surprise was how good the canon 600D is at planetary. All comments/ advice/ criticisms most welcome...

Brilliant video Rory. I was looking forward to this and it didn’t disappoint. Your videos were one of the things that persuaded me to “have a go” and see what I could do. 

Cant wait till the next one. Got any good ideas yet?

Nothing makes me happier than someone having a go after watching one of my vids.  The next vids will be shorter and less polished as i think more vids will help my low subscribers count.

 Curious to know if anyone likes Pink Bunny? Its useful  to have a sidekick as otherwise its just me talking all the time... but obvs if she/he isn't working then i'll have to think of something else. 

many thx for watching and thx for the encouragement ?

Hey I like the bunny, it's all part of the humour of your vids. It helps separate them from some of the stuffier presentations out there and probably helps it appeal to a different audience. It all depends who you're making the videos for? Is it people who are just starting out? They'll probably find the humour helps puncture some of the mysteries of astronomy, it did for me.

Excellent!   Really enjoyed it, and some nice results.   Any chance you could expand a little on your electronic focuser though?   It's something I've toyed with the idea of making but never got as far as actually doing anything.

SR.

Pink bunny is brilliant. Was shocked to hear it speak.

Just watched a series of your videos, after seeing this post. Brilliant work, Rory - really entertaining, and just shows what astrophotography can be done on a budget! Great M51 image with the SCT, too.

Regards, Mike.

Very entertaining. Interesting tip about the foggy nights - I've always tended to avoid those. Probably explains a lot!

Yeh i was suprised by that too.  It useful to know when  not to bother...  Like the last 3 weeks when mars is closest have been lousy.  Thx for watching

      Some images of Jupiter including a transit by Europa's shadow.  127mm Maksutov, ASI224MC camera, captured with Sharpcap4, processed with Registax6.   Because of a mistake with a newer laptop and software, I recorded the videos as thousands of .fits files and had to figure out a way of converting them to something usable (=use PIPP to output an .avi file).
      The images have turned out much better than I expected - I noted the seeing as "not good". I have had worse results with my 8" SCT which seems to under-perform unless the seeing is really good.

      Hey all. 
      I am a complete nooby. And I’m trying to get going (on a budget) with what I have available. I am trying to use my dslr canon 2000d with Nina and sharpcap. Unfortunately after downloading the drivers etc it’s still not connecting to either. Please help!
       
      many thanks, Mike.

      Mars colonization is always found to be at the top of the list of space colonization but Venus colonization is actually better in many aspects.

      I didn't get a chance to spend too much time hunting the best seeing conditions for planetary imaging this year, but this is the best image of Saturn that I captured this season... Captured through a 8" SCT @ f30 (Televue 3X Barlow) using a Skyris 618C CCD.
