I finally got Uranus with my Nexstar 5i to round out my solar system images.  The hardest image to get as an amateur is the Earth.  The best I could do is a photo of the earth's shadow outlined by the time-lapse of the moon moving through its shadow during a lunar eclipse.  I am still missing Pluto but that will have to wait. 

 

Here are the details:

1. All of the planet photos are with the 5i and an ASI120MC-S

2. The moon and the sun are with a Nikon D7500 and a Sigma 150 - 600 mm lens (about a 90 mm primary aperture)

3. The lunar eclipse was taken with a Pentax MG, 130 mm f/4 lens  and Fuji Super G+ film

Great collection.   Interesting approach to get the earth in your set. Nice texture on your mercury with your 5 inch!

Thank you. Mercury and Venus were both imaged in daylight to try to get them at high altitude. Just a little tricky to find them.
