Planetary season is not quite over yet. Venus captured at 25 degrees and amusingly every other planet captured at 36 degrees.

 

Celestron Deluxe CPC 1100 Edge HD, Optolong UV/IR block, Siebert barlow, ZWO ADC, ZWO ASI 485MC.

Firecapture, Autostakkert, Astraimage, The Gimp.

 

Venus first.

Jupiter & Galilean moons. Needed the full sensor area to capture them all in the wide field.

Saturn, not many moons captured this time. I must be getting lazy/sloppy.

Neptune. Triton came up nicely even at 300% so only one image required.

Thanks. I can understand about the relatives - when people want to look through the telescope, besides 47 Tucanae and the Orion Nebula, nothing else really excites them except for the moon and the gas giants (and Mars close to opposition), so showing them planets is ideal. That and light pollution of course.

I really love your widefield planetary images. The closeups are superb too, but something about the widefield images that add to the "vastness" of space, which is what really pulled me into astronomy as a kid. Thanks for sharing!

Thanks! We have very similar taste in images :)

 

I've stopped doing IR and UV images and concentrated on getting better colour and wide field images. When I get my replacement optical tube from Celestron hopefully I should be able to go back to imaging on a wedge and that helps the quality of moon captures to have no field rotation.

You have had a great year Con! You and Andrew have really made Melbourne look like an imaging hotspot despite a cloudier year. Have a relaxing Christmas

Thanks, you too. I did not miss imaging on almost any clear night this year, so there was enough coverage to get the best of nights. 7th of October was my reference best night this year.
