    What is planet X, and could you be more specific?

    planet x is the tenth planet in our solar system ,it is thought to be a brown dwarf/binary star.

    it has very little light output and therefore needs a infra red range to record on film

    its in a retrograde orbit with our sun and should be viewable over the southern hemisphere

    That "is the tenth planet" is rather optimistic.

    A planet being a star, a star being a planet is something else...

    My understanding was that the Planet X theory was finally killed a while ago. So, photographing something that doesn't exist would be quite a feat!

    There isn't, as far as we can see, a "tenth planet"--just a lot of stuff out in the oort cloud and the Kuiper belt. There remains some speculation of a distant brown or red dwarf companion, but it's just that--highly speculative. There's certainly nothing that could be picked up by an amateur telescope and ordinary film.

    This month's Make Magazine has an article about building and launching your own orbiting satellite - perhaps this might help? Getting the film back could be troublesome though ...

    It seems to me you'll need a helluva lens to record it.
