My 2018 Solar System

I’ve been quiet for a while, largely due to car problems, hopefully behind me for now!

I’ve managed to image all the planets (except Earth and poor Pluto!) this year, although Uranus and Neptune were fuzzed up by poor seeing and Mercury is fairly random – I got a shot of it in the sunset above Barton under Needwood from the flyover on the A38! After darkening the background and resampling to three time bigger I was left with a red dot that is Mercury but I won’t pretend it’s ‘proper’ image.

 

Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune.

  1. These are truly amazing and must have taken a lot of time, effort and photographic skill. Were they from primary focus imaging or eyepiece projection and what telescope was used…if its not giving away your ‘trade’ secrets.
