My First Decent Planet Images

September 06, 2021

I have been experimenting with astrophotography on and off for a couple of years but with poor results. This weekend I produced my first images worth sharing. The main issue with my previous attempts was that I didn’t know how to process the images correctly. I still have a lot to learn and hope to have better quality images in the future, but I am really pleased with these results.
