I had a look on this forum and surprisingly saw your pictures performed with a 150mm sct, Evan

The clear pole is well highlighted a it is.

Congratulations.

Think to name all your images for showing them elsewhere (at the BAA section for reference by me).

Neptune 3 September  2019      C6 on EVO  using ASI 1224MC

 

I re-post this recent image here with some trepidation as the seeing was not good and perhaps my imaging a bit subpar for the task.  But I guess it may encourage others to put some small bore Neptune and Uranus pics up and breathe some life into this thread and this is one area where Northerners have the current advantage in location and should get some nice images..

Ok, a bit goofy but I got both Neptune and Uranus with my 6SE at f/25 on a couple of night doing Mars (Mars is oriented correctly so both Neptune and Uranus are), nothing but a blue fuzzy ball for Uranus and a comet-like looking spread out smaller fuzzy ball for Neptune after stacking  (<-  don't laugh now).  Neptune was a verrrrry dim spot in the FOV during real-time video.  To be honest I was surprised I could even see it.   ...
