Planet set to end November

Captured a great planet set tonight to end November with. Jupiter and red spot with moons Ganymede and Io. Ganymede shows diagonal surface features. Mars with a little dusting in the southern hemisphere, and the beautiful Saturn.

Skywatcher PDS300 12" F5 Newtonian at F15, Svbony SV305, Svbony barlow, modified NEQ6 Pro.

Excellent captures of the trio and albedo features on Ganymede as a bonus, glad to see that you had good seeing.
Something that I'd like to try before too late, never seem to get clear evenings or decent seeing though

Thanks Jeff. Seeing here in Mackay is better now than it is in winter when the planets are at opposition. They need to shift a few months. I suppose they will in time.

Another fine set of planetary images again Kevin. You've proved for those fortunate enough to have larger aperture OTAs, there's still opportunities to produce good results. That shot of Mars is as good , if not better, than some seen here 6 weeks ago. Lucky to have a 12 inch to step up to as the planets diminish in size. Great work from the SV305 once more!

Thanks Michael. I've had the 12" for just a week now and am really enjoying the planet show it's putting on. And the SV305 is a bargain of a camera.
