Jupiter and Saturn are still challenge to image here at north, perhaps for another 2-3 years. At altitude of just 16 dgr. above horizon even max. settings of ADC helps not so much.

Mars is higher, but by the time it was high in the sky seeing become worse.

Very nice. Interesting to see what can be achieved with an elevation of only 16 degrees.
Thanks Paul
