I love to take planetary picture in my front yard. However, I don't have much chance to take a picture due to a very limit sky condition at my home, about 4 miles west of Suvanabhumi Airport, Bangkok, Thailand. On that day, the sky altitude below 30 degrees are red color from light polution. However, I still begin my picture. I start to setup Orion Skyquest XT8g at 7pm., local time ( 7 from UTC). The setup time is only 10 minutes, most of time use for wiring and computer setup. The telescope is use only a few minutes! ORION SkyQuest XT8g ease all of telescope setup process. Just place a dobsonian base on flat and horizon area. Then cross check by a free app on my IPhone 4 for a bubble level. Place OTA on the base. Next, just start for star alignment. I used to setup EQ mount with a simple star drift. It waste my time for nearly half and hour to setup every time. But not on dobsonian goto from ORION! Unfortunately, I waste nearly 2 hours for cleaning my CCD camera, DMK 21 AU 618. It's nearly 2 years old. A small grain of dust could damage all of your pictures. I was found that all of pictures from a night after imaging process, are dirt in red/green/blue. It was from a grain of dust! So, I use my jewerly loop and cotton buds gentely wipe a grain of dust one by one. The first picture start nearly 9:30 PM. I begin with Jupiter. Then, Moon, Mars, and Saturn. Only if my sleepiness won't overcome me, I could get Venus and Mercury in the early morning of the next day. Additional, I use nearly 2 weeks find a solution on immage processing of Winjupos and others. I hope to complete others images soon. And, I hope that my picture will be one of your inspiration on your planetary image project. Hope you like my picture! Clear Skies!
