The large Magellanic Cloud is back for us here in the So Hemisphere. This is a one off without stacking or much processing. I did blend in a previous photo taken with an 80mm of the Tarantula (Upper center); other than that I just reduced saturation and eliminated much of the green and gold yellow. I am not a fan of Milky Way photography that makes our galaxy sparkle like a digital Billboard in Disneyland. That's just not what the Milky way looks like.

It sounds like we think somewhat alike that way; I hate to take time away from imaging DSOs when the skies are good - I wait for unfavorable phases of the Moon for my planetary work. Wishing you Clear Skies and a good shot of Mars!

Hi Jeff, It wasn't so much a seeing issue, the problem was the Haze and humidity, the planets had huge halos and shining through a thin cloud layer there was very little contrast on the planetary disks. When I took this photo in the outback 5 hours north of where I live, seeing and weather was above average, but I did not want to waste precious night hours for the planets which I normally shoot from my balcony in the burbs. But hopefully my time with Mars will still come!

That’s some really good work. In hindsight, I’m sure you’re quite familiar with the principles of “seeing”!
