Planets! =)

Again out a the Witte Observatory helping out with a group of Boy Scouts.... I set up my tripod and took pictures as the crescent Moon set with Venus and Jupiter close behind.  Here are just a couple of the photos.  The partially cloudy sky was beautiful!

Then I stitched them together and made this little video....

After the scouts had gone I worked with John Toney and Dave Philabaum to use our 12" refractor and eye-piece projection (25mm ep) to get some images of Saturn

Still not real impressed.....

Here are a couple of videos shot using the same method

A work in progress?  Or simply bumping up against limitations of the technique?  Hmmm..... ;)
