It has been a month since I posted images from July 4, so I think its time to get on the bandwagon and start again.

 

This night was the first of many busy all-nighters from Jupiter just after midnight to Venus shortly before sunrise. There will many more of these nights to share, so hopefully it won't be a month until I post the next one.

 

Telescope: Celestron C14 EdgeHD, Orion Apex 90mm
Camera: ZWO ASI290MM, ASI174MM
Barlow: Astro-Physics BARADV
Filters: Chroma Red, Green, Blue, Baader 685nm, ZWO CH4, Baader 610nm

I also imaged the Penumbral Lunar Eclipse from this night to see how visible the outer reaches of Earth's shadow are. I like to avoid posting only links because it is an unnecessary extra click for you, but I am not going to bother trying to fit this within CN's strict file size limit.

Thanks Sunny and Mark!

 

I used my Orion Apex 90mm mounted on a Starblast AutoTracker to capture large portions of the Moon, then used Photoshop to merge them together (File -> Automate -> Photomerge...) and create the animation.
