Saturn 5th June

Postby si_ » Tue Jun 07, 2016 9:24 pm

It's been a while since I posted here - a symptom of the poor weather over the last couple of seasons. Anyhow, we were lucky to be treated to some decent seeing for planetary imaging recently and although it is really low in the sky and I only get a 10 minute window through trees when I can see it, I had a go at Saturn. Now I know that my collimation needs fine tuning (relatively new scope) and that with Saturn at just 10 degrees of elevation, I wasn't going to get much but the seeing forecast was very good and I wanted to try. I was pleasantly surprised and happy I made the effort.

Capture details:
C9.25 ASI224MC ZWO ADC
FocalLength=6600mm
Resolution=0.12"
10 degrees altitude
Latitude: 55 degrees North
800 frames stacked
