In all my years I've never attempted planetary imaging, but I also do a unit in a local middle school in "Space Science". I always cover Stellar Creation, Black Holes, CV's, etc. I would now like to introduce some "hands on" experience by having students schedule imaging and do some rudimentary photo processing. i KNOW that Mars, Jupiter and Saturn are going to be the most popular targets. So, my question is given my system (see below) in New Mexico, is it even possible to do such imaging? If so, what do I need to know?


Celestron C14
Sbig ST 10 (i believe its fastest exposure is 0.1 second)
Filter wheel ( with BGRI and Red, V and Blue filters)
