Planet and Moon Size Comparison's


Recommended Posts


was originally just wanted to compare actual capture sizes of planets

Mars, Jupiter and Saturn when using 127mm Mak @f/23.6

by combining 3 pics i have taken so far using Phillips SPC900 webcam

(thinking of adding 2.5x or 3x Barlow to try @f30-36)

ended up adding old single moon shot from old avi for 1st 2 pics

and old 7avi merge of moon for 3rd and 4th pics

which shows comparison of moons of Jupiter and Saturn with Earth Moon

added lots of details on pics

best viewed when clicked on for proper size

i really like image i have of Mars and Saturn with Titan

and think Moon pics used are ok,

dissapointed with Jupiter Image and hope to improve on this later this year

think they look gud together tho

good project which has taken gud few hrs of processing 2day using iMerge and Gimp

any comments tips advice appreciated gud or bad

1st 2 pics are 100% capture size when clicked on

3rd and 4th pics has been cropped and reduced slightly so not 100% capture size

Moon Shots and small Jupiter with Moons are @f/11.8
