First Happy New Year to you all!

The year 2012 was good for hunting planetary images.
Here is a selection of the best I got, they are all made using a 10" Meade LX200R.

We have:
Venus, 2012/08/23, camera IDS UEye Ruby, W47 filter

Mars, 2012/02/21, color camera Point Grey Firefly (IMX035)

Jupiter, 2012/11/11 and 2012/11/21, camera IDS UEye Ruby, LRGB

Saturn, 2012/06/24, color camera Point Grey Firefly (IMX035)

Uranus, 2012/09/14, camera IDS UEye Ruby, Baader IR685 filter (colorised)

Neptune, 2012/08/04, camera IDS UEye Ruby, no filter (colorised)


The image is reduced to 50% because of forum restrictions on image sizes, the full is here: http://i40.photobuck...lation_2012.jpg
