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 wasnt great this time, thus we have that fluffy Jupiter. Mercury was surprisingly easy to spot, despite it was located about 5ยบ 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 was 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.
