This is my latest effort capturing Solar System objects in broad daylight. 

Blessed with good clean sky today, Venus, Jupiter and Mercury were captured around 12.10pm-12.30pm in the afternoon. 

Seeing wasn't great this time, thus we have that fluffy Jupiter. Mercury was surprisingly easy to spot, despite it was located about 5º 14' from the Sun!

Towards late evening, the Moon was imaged about 5.50pm. Saturn was a tougher to get mostly due to clouds. Only when around 6.20pm did I managed to get it between the clouds.

Local sunset time was 7.30pm

All image were taken using Skywatcher 120ED, running on EQ6 mount, controlled via Cartes du Ciel. IMG132e camera used. Stacked via Autostakkert, and extensive post-processing and cleanup in PixInsight.

Until barely two weeks ago, Pluto tantalized humanity for eight decades with mysteries we could only imagine seen as just a point of light or fuzzy blob in the world’s most powerful telescopes. Now the last explored planetary system in our solar system is…

Pluto Dazzles in False Color | NASA New Horizons
July 23, 2015: New Horizons scientists use enhanced color images to detect differences in the composition and texture of Pluto’s surface. When close-up images are combined with color data from the Ralph instrument, it paints a new and surprising portrait of the dwarf planet. The “heart of the heart,” Sputnik Planum, is suggestive of a source region of ices. The two bluish-white “lobes” that extend to the southwest and northeast of the “heart” may represent exotic ices being transported away from Sputnik Planum. 

Four images from New Horizons’ Long Range Reconnaissance Imager (LORRI) were combined with color data from the Ralph instrument to create this enhanced color global view. The images, taken when the spacecraft was 280,000 miles (450,000 kilometers) away, show features as small as 1.4 miles (2.2 kilometers).

Worse Venus ever! Too low for comfort.

Losing battle with seeing. Daytime imaging is a must at this stage

27 July 2015. Upload for record purposes

Worse ever seeing, too low near the horizon, with clouds and wobbly air.

Composite image of Moon and Saturn (lower right) to scale.

You need to zoom in to actual size. Or better in the flickr page, choose original size

G+ somehow limit the size. The original is 8288 x 8040
