Jupiter-Saturn Conjunction

Posted By: shiner, 12-22-2020, 12:50 AM

KP, DA300, 1.4x (420mm), Astrotracer 1/15sec. Enhanced with PS, Gigapixel AI. Saturated the color that was already there (Jupiter blown out). Was cool to see the rings (sort of) with 420mm. one of 50+ frames.

Great shot. I have the same gear but unfortunately it is too cloudy here so even bother. I hope to get some good astro photographs in due course.

Thanks! I zoom in with LV, focus, and then wait for all tripod oscillations to cease before hitting the remote 2 sec release, trying to assure the sharpest few pixels possible

Well done! I was struggling to get an image that wasn't blurred with the DFA 150-450. I'm not sure how I'd go with the TC as well!
