Hi Jeffrey, I agree your 120mm apo shod give you nice images. Thanks so much for your kind words on my images. Cheers, Phil
Thanks, Philip! I understand what you are saying about the AT6RC - that's a pretty big obstruction in the light path coming in. I am sure it wreaks havoc with the contrast. My Mak might suffer a little bit from the same problem. My 120mm apo is probably my best bet. I must say those are some pretty fine planet images. Really nice detail and color. Your Saturn image looks just as terrific, btw.
Hi Jeffrey, Sorry for the delay getting back to you. My set up for this is as follows; Celestron CGEM, SCT8, UV/IR Filter, ZWO ASI 120 MC camera. I find the SCT8 is great for planets and the moon where as my AT6RC is not so great for planets. I hope this helps you, Cheers, Phil.
Also super nice! Can you please provide details on your set-up? I have a 120mm Skywatcher Pro and a 127 mm Skywatcher Mak and aspire to get some nice planet images. What scope did you use for your shots?
