    Capture details below, I'm also on Instagram if anyone's interested.

    Camera: Canon 5D mark IV

    Lens: Sigma 50mm 1.4 DG HSM Art

    Focal length: 50mm

    Aperture: f/1.4

    ISO: 400 for sky; 100 for foreground.

    Shutter speed: 30s tracked for sky; 30s for foreground.

    One shot for the foreground, taken right at the end of the blue hour, then 1 shot for the core, tracked. Both shots then blended and edited in Lightroom and Photoshop.

    Feedback always appreciated!

    I photographed both of these planets on the same night about 10 minutes apart. This image is a composite of two different images, as there is no way Jupiter and Saturn would appear this close together in the sky. Also if you look closley you can see 2 of the Galilean moons of Jupiter. Shortly after shooting these, I made a small time lapse of Ganymede Transiting Jupiter. Captured on April 30th, 2019 from my apartment roof.

     

    Equipment:

    • Meade ETX125-EC (1900mm f/15)

    • Orion Sirius EQ-G

    • ZWO ASI1600MM-Pro

    • ZWO EFW 8x1.25"/31mm

    • Astronomik LRGB+CLS Filters- 31mm

    • Astrodon H-alpha 5nm 31mm

    Acquisition:

    • Jupiter Exposure: 30ms

    • Saturn Exposure: 100ms

    • 1k frames per RGB channel

    Capture Software:

    • Sharpcap and NINA for filter wheel control

    Jupiter Processing:

    • Stacked the best 10% of frames in Autostakkert, autosharpened

    • Mapped RG&B; frames to color channels in photoshop

    • rotate and crop

    Saturn Processing:

    • Stacked the best 10% of frames in Autostakkert,

    • Registax Wavelets for sharpening

    • Pixinsight

      • Channelcombination into a single RGB image
      • DynamicCrop
      • ColorCalibration
      • Slight CurveTransformation

    The final two images were taken into Photoshop and combined to make the composite, and then annotated in PixInsight

    Hi. Amateur here who’s about to receive their first telescope (it’s also a 5”). Would you say it’s harder to find far away objects with a smaller telescope since it limits the field of view? Nice pictures by the way.

  • mrgermy

    Always fun to imagine how "old" the light that is returned to your telescope from these planets is. The time it takes from Sol's light to hit them and then the planets to reflect the light back to Earth.

    I wonder what I was doing at the moment the light actually hit those planets.

    I'm not interested in taking pictures of stars and planets. But I do want to buy a telescope. Is it a hobby that keeps giving ? Or does it get boring looking at the same stars and planets? Can you describe why you love your hobby?

    Dude, this is the space sub I follow to NOT get the Musk circle jerkery. This is just space junk to stroke a rich man's ego.
