From the night of March 12,th Jupiter with 2x, 3x and 5x barlow lenses and Mars with a 5x. Even got some of Jupiters moons. Telescope is an Orion 203mm 8 inch Newtonian imaging scope. The mount used is an Ioptron zeq25 and the Camera is a ZWO ASI120mc. The Barlow lenses are 2x Orion Shorty, and 3x Meade Shorty, and a 5x High Point scientific.

Woah! Well done!

I’m thinking of going in and buying an 8in telescope….do you think I can get anything worthwhile under a $500 price budget?

Good imaging. Barlows make so much difference.

Damn that atmospheric distortion!
But the stacked picture turned out awesome =)

Good job Charlie! Your Jupiter videos are similar to mine from years ago, but your final image is superior. I will have to look at the AutoStakkert software since I only use Registax for mine. I just watched the last bit and saw that your location is Orange, Texas. I lived there from 1958 – 1962. Just a little tyke. Mars should be great this time next year..
