This is awesome. Glad you were able to capture clearly with crazy city light pollution.

Good job @Thiyagarajan.

Planets and the moon can be photographed and observed even from the most light polluted places.

For me the problem wasn’t the light pollution it was the “sun” because since it was early morning 5:30 the sun started to rise and, dimmed out the brightness of the planets .thus it was hard to find out the location of planets after each video,since I had a manual dobsonian .

Thanks @siva :grinning:

If you get used to tracking planets with your manual dobsonian, try targetting the Space Station.

Yea sure !i will try my best :+1:
