Welcome to my Planetary Image Gallery!
These images are taken with my ToUcam Pro and LX200. The camera takes a short (~ 2 min.) video, which is pulled apart and stacked in Registax, for further processing. Images posted with newest on top. Details in the image.
11.22.05 - Seeing a little better. Probably the last of the season.
11.18.05 - After tips on white balance, this version was much better, color wize. However, the seeing was only marginal.
11.05.05 - After a long layoff from planetary imaging, I tried Mars at it's opposition. Seeing was average, and I got the color balance all screwed up during capture. Not a terrible result, but I can do better.
Jupiter 05.25.05 - Seeing was good, I thought, but the images don't bear it out.
Saturn 02/26/05 - My best planetary image ever!
Saturn taken 2/25/05
My first planetary image in almost a year! Saturn, taken 1/30/05 with my LX200, 2x barlow, and ToUcam at f/20.
Jupiter from 04/25/04 and 04/26/04
Seeing was much better after a month of nothing, and I got some decent images. I still haven't nailed it yet, but that may change when I take my stuff to the condo in Tahoe for some imaging! The first image in this series was shot at a lower magnification, to see if it looked better with the less than great valley seeing conditions. I think it does.
