Some pics of the planets I took.

Crappy by Hubble standards but descent by backyard standards. I'll do better in the summer I think when I don't freeze to death.

 

 

Jupiter: You can almost see the clouds.

Saturn:

Venus: It's so bright in the sky at sunset it's unbelievable. Couldn't get a good focus though.

:assimilated: Great pics for just being the backyard variety Danny with the exception of Venus, the planets in your pics remind me of the same views I get through my scope. Thank you for sharing them.

I don't even know the magnification of the scope but it's a fairly good sized one with no motor. I have an adaptor that hold my digital cam to the eyepiece but it's not the greatest setup. If I had a motor and a lens that actually screwed on the camera I could get some really sick shots. I was going to do Andromeda tonight but it was too low near the horizon. I'll go out earlier tomorow. I hav Mars pics too:

Those are awesome pictures, man. I wonder what the Venusians sunsets look like if one could survive more than a few seconds on the surface. I applaud you in your efforts and your expertise in photography using the equipment that you have.

Great pics, thank you for sharing them, I can't really look to the stars where I live due to the city lights so I am always greatful when someone posts some pics to look at.

Actually those pics were taken from inside Montreal city limits! Even from the brightest cities, planets are visible. They are many times brighter than most stars.
