    No, planets are actually harder to photograph than objects much further away.

    The deep sky objects, galaxies, nebula, ect.. are caputred by taking many exposures and stacking them to form a single image. This works well for those faint objects. Planets out to Saturn are very bright objects compared to deep sky objects. Long exposures are not possible, but short exposures dont capture enough details or reference stars for stacking the image. Still frames from a video capture of a planet are actually the best method for planetary pics. I just have my rig set up for faint deep sky objects and generally focus on those. I took the Moon pic with one 1/2500" exposure, and it is big enough not to lose detail in a short exposure.

    They say if you stare at it long enough you'll hear ukulele music and a golden retriever with a tie-dye bandana sitting next to a Yeti cooler will begin to appear.
