A Planetary Roundup from Thursday night (Sept 10). I shot all of these from the Heavenly Backyard Garden using the Celestron 11" EdgeHD Telescope with the Altair Hypercam 294c One-shot-color camera. (The sky was full of humidity along with passing clouds, so not the best resolution features of the planets.)
