Great seeing during the time with Neptune. The southern hemisphere appears bright. I tried both the 610nm and 685nm near-infrared filters to see how their results compare.

Decent seeing on this night.

First light with my new ASI462MC. This camera is more sensitive than the ASI290MM, especially in near-infrared wavelengths.

First light with my new ASI462MC. This was used without the Atmospheric Dispersion corrector since I couldn't figure out how to make it fit in the existing imaging train.

First time going after Neptune with the C14 and first light with a Baader Red filter, which allows more infrared light through than the 685nm filter. I cut my time with the ice giant short to have enough time for Mars.

Notes:

  • Much of the southern hemisphere may be brighter than the rest of the planet.
