Jupiter, saturn, Mars 25 March.

Recommended Posts

Got images of Jupiter and Saturn in the morning and a tiny Mars in the evening. Saturn was very low and a fence may have blocked some light. Apparent diameter of Mars is now below 5" and the evening seeing was poor.  

Used: CPC800, ASI120MC, ADC,  processed in Registax6.Jupiter04_44_55.jpg.acd2d9c0482540018252faa59750c5f1.jpgSaturn05_19_55.jpg.3e13d83b8362c80a30885084f0b2e2c0.jpgMars20_02_41.jpg.49f6251c029c9da4c78b0f738b7a117d.jpg

Really enjoy your images. 

I was quite pleased with my single image of Jupiter, no processing.  unguided 8" f4.9 with  a Canon SL1.

      Can't see that this has been flagged-up anywhere, but on on Dec 21 this year, Jupiter and Saturn will pass within 6 arcminutes of each other. Closest approach will be at 1300(UT), but UK sunset will be about 4pm and they will still be 8 degrees above the horizon an hour later.
      Got to be worth a try!

      While I was out waiting for the Starlink 7 satellites to pass:
      I grabbed a couple of videos with my Nikon D3300 DSLR and my 2.5X barlow in my Evostar 72. I know the large sensor of the DSLR and "short" focal length of 1050mm is far from optimal but I'm quite surprised with how the final images came out!
      I've always wanted to do some planetary imaging but because of a lack of time and to some extend also money I've never really committed. These images have made me reconsider purchasing the ZWO ASI-120MC for my 10" dob or even the Evostar 72ED.

      Not too bad for a 72mm ED refractor if I should say so!!
      Advice is of course appreciated!

      I was very lucky this morning to capture the Starlink 7 satellites a couple minutes after deployment pass right below Jupiter.
      Here's the video on it:
      Clear skies!
