Mars and Saturn 11-02-2010 by Chrissyo Mars and Saturn 11-02-2010 by Chrissyo
My first proper upload in a while. I've been very busy these holidays, and it has been very cloudy for the last month, so I have not had a chance to get outside with my telescope.

So the planets here are Mars and Saturn. The first Mars image on the left was taken using a 5X Powermate whilst the two on the right were taken using only a 2X barlow. The middle image was resized 2X. The first Saturn image on the left was also taken with a 5X Powermate, and the 2X barlow was used for the image on the right. Also included is an image of Saturn with its Moons. The moons are (from left to right) Tethys, Dione, Titan and Rhea.

The seeing wasn't terribly good, it had been storming for the few nights before hand and the sky had just cleared up. Plus, I am somewhat out of practise, I haven't done much astrophotography in the last few months. =P

Taken with my 10 Newtonian telescope on a standard EQ6 mount with various barlows/Powermates and a DMK21AU04.AS camera. Registax was used for processing.

Looks amazing. =)

I'd love to get a large enough scope to see this much detail!
