Images of Jupiter and Saturn I captured last week. Both planets are currently very visible in the southern sky after dark. Jupiter appears as a very bright star, and Saturn is a bit to the right of Jupiter, about as far apart as your two fists put together and at arms length. And no, these two planets weren't this close together. This is a composite image where I took the individual images I captured and put them next to each other for a nice presentation.

Gear used:
-Celestron 8" EdgeHD SCT f/10 telescope, 2000mm focal length
-Nikon D500
-Televue 2.5x magnifier, making for 5000mm equivalent focal length, f/25

I captured video frames of the planets and used a program called Autostakkert to sort and stack the best 20% of the frames. Final editing done in PS.

Oops, forgot to include that. I edited the post to add it.
:) Thanks. Those are great. Was curious what I would need to capture those kinds of photos.
