    Post 1st try at Saturn and Jupiter



    This is the 1st time i'm giving a proper try at planets. I was able to capture some videos of Jupiter and Saturn just before sun rise. I was at my dark site but the conditions weren't the best with bellow average seeing and transparency and i had to abandon my DSO capturing due to heavy dew. That night was pretty much useless so i have decide to at least give a try at the planets. I'm excited with the results even though they aren't the best. hoping to do more planetary and moon imaging.

    Whole image capturing and stacking thing is new to me so i'm still learning stuff.
    captured with Sharpcap, stacked with AutoStakkert!3 and Wavelets in Registax 6
    best 20% of 5000 frames

    Really good, and with a DSO scope! Both these planets are too far south from my latitude for the next few years, so I'll not even point my scopes at them.

    Nice images,

    Those are absolutely beautiful images, geethq!

    Saturn is particularly striking!

    I would definitely say that the planets were the saving grace for the night.

    Thanks for sharing,

    Hello Geeth,

    that's an excellent first try!
    It looks to me like not only Cassini, but also maybe Encke, and structures in the B ring in Saturn.

    Thank you,
