Hi all, with a small window in the cloud forcast i wasnt going to waste it so i thought I would have ago at the planets, something I havent done for a few years. The seeing was poor and I had to relearn how to use my old scope and camera. I got jupiter and Saturn but gave up getting Mars as moon glow and mist put an end to the session. So here they are, taken with my old and dusty SW 127 mak and a ASI 120 mc ( that old usg 2 is so slow! only managed a max of 5 frps! } I know they could be better but im pleased with the results.

Looking good, use a region of interest to cut the file size down hence increase the frame rate. Also, capture non debayered and let Autostakkert debayer the capture.

Saturn and Jupiter are tough targets down at that altitude at the moment.

Have you tried Mars recently?
