Discovery Astrophotography with ZWO ASTRO

Telescope Video Saturn at Opposition, and Mars Dust Storm. Celestron C9.25 ASI224mc camera

By Charlie Golden

June 2018. Mars Dust Storm Saturn at opposition. Seeing conditions were in and out at best. Had to back off to a 2.5 powermate instead of the typical 3x X-cel barlow I normally use. The planets being low in the sky along with a turbulant atmosphere have kept me from getting as good of images this year as in 2017. The Mars dust storm has grown to a golbal even over the last days and weeks. Firecapture shows my focal length as 4900mm compared to the 7000mm I typically shoot the planets at. Maybe coming weeks leading up to Mars opposition will be better. Thank you for watching and please subscribe to my channel.
