Got my new QHY5T camera today for high resolution planetary images.
Tried it out real quick today under poor seeing conditions; not too shabby for first light !

Yoda - that's a really nice image. Very clear and not a lot of noise. I'm impressed!

Imaged Mars early this AM; will post results later.

---------- Post added at 07:26 AM ---------- Previous post was at 07:01 AM ----------

Processed some of the images; not good enough to post.
Seeing was sort of lousy this morning.
Better luck next time.

I took a look at Mars recently in my 102mm frac and was amazed by the detail I got. You could see one polar cap to the north and a few other surface features. I wish I had my camera with me at the time.

Jupiter, Uranus and Venus. Shot through cellular camera (Samsung Fascinate).

Uranus is in-between the others, but at too low of a magnitude for direct observation.
