Sky conditions were sub optimal, but I managed to snag single videos for each planet

Hey, the conditions may well have been "sub optimal" but I had no problem telling what planet each image showed. They're really not too bad at all, all things considered. It's guys like you that tide me over until the snow and cold passes and I can get out observing these same glorious spheres. smile.gif

Thank you for sharing!

Looked the same in Bim only smaller by eye! Such a cool orientation from what I'm used to at 45°N.

Excellent images. I can finally see Saturn's southern hemisphere for the first time in years peeking out just under the A ring.

Well done, lots of detail evident on Mars. Hope the dust storms stay away this year as the planet comes closer
