Jupiter and Saturn in fair Uk seeing, part of a special night!


Recommended Posts

I had been planning an "all nighter" for a while and what a night it turned out to be. What with Neowise before midnight, A stunning red/pink Moon just on the horizon at the same time, the planets, the Neowise again before Sunset with a Noctilucent cloud display as well! 

The seeing was nowhere near the best, but at least some decent detail was clearly visible for a change. I am now able to image the Planets when low down around an hour earlier thanks to the neighbours recent pruning of the lower conifer branches.

All images captured with my C9.25, ASI224mc and ASI290mm. I have been fairly gentle with the processing, as a more aggressive approach seemed to just add a lot of noise.

Great images.

Oh boy...I have a lot to learn with planetary imaging. With such low altitudes I don't know if it my poor technique or the actual conditions.

I image with a  zwo120mc ( C8HD)  and have been eyeing the 224/290 and this new kid on the block the 462mc  as a possible upgrade.

Which of your two do you prefer ??
