Fantastic images really, and i'm kind of inspired to see you've use the same scope which i use for planetary/lunar, i love it, it really is a planet killer as you demonstrate here. 

You have made us Mak pack members proud lol!

Wow. 

Great, ultra clear, images but more than that as Sunshine states they really inspire others (especially newbies like myself) to what can be achieved. :thumbright:

Thank you so much ?

I love the Mak scopes ans i love this Mak. Outstanding optics and a very small shifting. A great tube. I've got an ES 2x focal extender but not used at that time because the atmospheric turbulence was too high the last summer with the planets at a low altitude.

Super images of the two planets. :) 

You have some wonderful images on your website.  “The Last Alien North” was an incredible setting to capture The Milky Way.

Thank you Richard.

Oh yes, my picture of King of Wings. I used my Nikon D750 Full Frame with my Samyang 12mm f/2.8 fish-eye AE FF lens. ?

      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.

      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
