Description

2 years, 1 'scope - priceless is the joy of capturing The Planets I only read about in books when I was just a child

Seeing them through the scope is magic to me, even if some of them may seem featureless, or just reveal a solid color. For me, there's beauty and mystery in each of them.

I've used a Mak127 on an AZ mount for all planets, so more or less, here is what to expect if using a similar 5" scope. And I'm sure that a more experienced astronomer could get better results out of it.

It ain't much, but it's honest work.
