The Solar System

Here I'll be putting any new observations of Solar System objects from August 2023 onwards. My older observations can still be accessed via the Archive selection in the menu.

This page has sections for each solar system object arranged in order from the Sun outwards. Newest observations/images will appear at the top of each section of the page.

Clicking on any image will open the full size image in a new tab.

17th/18th January 2024


Another pair of glorius evenings, I attempted imaging with a barlow lens to get pictures of individual features. Unfortunately on the 17th my images were not in focus so all of these are from the 18th when I got the focussing much better.

16th January 2024


This evening I was clouded out very soon after I started so I only got the one image of the crater Fracastorius, which is at the south end of Mare Nectaris.

Another mosaic, this time of a 4 day old moon. Joined by three of the images used to create the mosaic.

All lunar images are going to be saturation enhanced from now on, I just think it looks more interesting.
