I have now captured every single planet in our solar system, except the one we are standing on. I feel I have squeezed as much resolution out of my tiny scope as possible. Finally can sell the 150mm f5 reflector with a horrible flimsy focuser, get a larger scope and start from scratch – getting a bit closer with more detail
Most planets were imaged a few years ago with only Mercury and Neptune left. On November 8-9, 2020, I was able to capture both – Neptune in the evening and Mercury in the morning.
