After going out with some of my friends, my dad and I decided to take photos of the gas giants Jupiter and Saturn. It is my 1st attempt in taking photos of a planetary object in the night sky.
When I arrived home, the viewing and imaging conditions for Jupiter was very good. The night sky had very little clouds and haze, perfect for an imaging session! Therefore, I took the chance to image my first planetary object with my dad and was thrilled with the results!
Overall, my first planetary imaging session was a resounding success! Looking forward to imaging more planets in the future!
