First images: Jupiter and Saturn

Prime focus with Canon 60D attached to SW200p last night when Saturn was at culmination (15 degrees) but still low enough to give a blurry image. My first photo of this planet. Jupiter was even lower but with iso800 the 4 Galilaen moons show up well but planet massively overexposed. The nearby full Moon also reduced the contrast. Attempted eyepiece projection but gave up trying to get the fast moving image in the camera lcd. Have an HEQ5 Pro for collection from RVO on Monday which should help track images and eventually get photos of some faint DSO’s. Thanks to Andy T for the demo of his HEQ5.
