The first domestic high-pressure powder neutron diffractometer PLANET celebrated five years since its operation started. Here, we will introduce the current status and subsequent progress. Expansion of measurable PT region: In the experiments using a 6-axis press, in-situ observation at 14 GPa, 1800 K became possible by increasing the anvil strength by shrink fitting and replacing a graphite with a TiC + Al$$_{2}$$O$$_{3}$$ heater. In experiments using the Paris Edinburgh Press (PE press), by reducing the anvil top to 2.5 mm in diameter, experiments at 30 GPa are possible. Improvement of measurement data quality: when using a PE press, samples are normally pressurized together with liquid pressure medium to avoid peak broadening. However, above 10 GPa, the medium solidifies and the peaks are broadened. To fix this problem, a system capable of heating the sample up to 100$$^{circ}$$C was designed and now we can obtain sharp diffraction peaks up to 20 GPa. New measurement method: In order to obtain macroscale information of samples under high PT condition, we attempted neutron radiograph. By using a compact neutron camera, we can place a camera close to the sample and obtain high resolution images.
