Saturn

The Queen of the night skies, always a favorite at star parties, and a favorite of mine too!

This is the best picture of Saturn I have managed to capture over the years. What is most remarkable about this is the image was captured while working with the ETX-125PE, a 5 inch portable telescope, not the larger and higher resolution 8 inch LX90 telescope in the observatory. Planets require very high magnification, and the seeing quality was superb at the time.

Equipment: Meade ETX-125PE 5 inch telescope @f/15, Celestron NexImage 5 - 5megapixel color camera.

Image post-processing: Multiple images stacked and processed in Registax 5 imaging software.
