Lovely detail, and even more impressive that you do this with a telescope on a Dobsonian mount. How long do you image for and roughly how many frames do you capture? Do you just keep nudging the mount to keep the planet in the FoV of the camera or is there another trick? It's a great image, well done.

Thanks James,
The scope sits on a home-built equatorial platform that keeps it in the field. Not suitable for deep sky work but with short exposures used in planetary imaging it works well.

Cheers

Martin
