    Default Mars and Saturn from last night! And a lost jupiter from march



    Was a gorgeous night last night so I took advantage. All images taken with ASI120 mc through 10" dob. The larger Mars iis my first success shooting with 5x barlow as the other and Saturn were shot through 2x. the Jupiter is from way back in the beginning of March and is data I thought I lost when I switched laptops. Ive always liked the Jupiter pics with the moons and shadows and was thrilled to have gotten that image. Thanks for looking, good or bad critism is graciously accepted.

    How did you manage that with a manual dob?

    Those are very nice Terry. Saturn is not an easy target these days. And with a Dob?

    Well done,

    I manually keep the planet in frame, very carefully i may add until i get enough data. Without a barlow its pretty easy, 2x is a tad more difficult, but the 5x is brutal to keep on target. I also find it much easier to manually track things as they are setting instead of rising but thats just me i think.
