    Sky has not been cooperating,  squeaked this one out. Shot on an AT10” RC with a 2.5 Powermate and QHY5III224. Took 70% of ~64k frame avi.

    I really like this shot.  I had no idea that you could get that much planet.  I really need to try this some time.  I wonder if there is a program that will allow my QSI cameras to shoot video?

    Great Shot

    Very nice. I always wondered if the RC scopes were any good for imaging planets. You seem to have answered that question.

    Thanks Sean and Mike.

     

    yes the RC did pretty good, considering I’m in a bortle class 8.  I had a Meade ETX setup, but after 4 nights of crappy skies, I took it down…of course the sky cleared a bit, so tried Mars with the RC.

    Time to move on, compiled pix of the planets I’ve gotten. Will have to come back and try again, now I’m bored with planets.</span>

    You did all these with an RC?

    I have really got to rethink my position on planets.  I know my old ATIK and ZWO cameras could shoot video but I am not sure if my QSI 690 or 683 can.  Is it a function of the camera or software?

    Yes all from the RC, as far as I know it’s a function of the camera.
