The Great Conjunction 2020 v2.0: The Night After


Recommended Posts

Tonight, I was able to focus more on capturing video of the conjunction for processing. I used the Orion StarShoot 5 MP Solar System Color Camera and the 127mm Orion StarMax Mak-Cass to capture a 10 second video that I processed in Registax 6. Light on the wavelets with finishing touches in Photoshop:

Cheers!

Reggie :D

Thanks, Scorpius. Last night, I was so focused with the DSLR that I didn't get a series of good video captures for further processing. I decided to try to get some video tonight while they were still close. I just did get the two in the same frame (as you can see)! Tomorrow night they will be too far apart to fit in my camera's frame so I got lucky, lol!

Nicely captured Reggie

Thanks, Pete. I was fortunate to have clear skies for the event. Were you able to see it?

I had a nice view on the night before the conjunction. So strange to see 2 planets in the same field of view, i enjoyed observing it more than imaging, which is unsual for me especially on Planets.
