Re: My astrophotography 2021

The giant planets. Again, Jupiter is crossing Aquarius, while Saturn still in Cap, and Neptune in Psc. If all goes well, I will be able to track Saturn completing another full circle in the celestial. But no human being has ever been able to track a full circle of Neptune's motion (164.8yr) in his/h...
