Observing Diary – The Moon, Jupiter and Saturn

Date: 4th May 2017

Location: My Backyard, Melbourne Australia

An unexpectedly cloudy evening meant some creative cloud-dodging, exploring the Moon early on, followed by Jupiter and Saturn.

All three of these shots were taken as short video grabs with a ZWO colour camera mounted on a 10 Inch RC scope and processed in AutoStakkert.
