First Saturn

Screen Shot 2014-06-03 at 07.51.21997

Follow up to Jupiter from January.  I stacked 7 pictures out of 25 I took from 6:24 to 6:31 UTC today.  (I rejected the rest before stacking for being too blurry.)  1/60 shutter, f/6.5, ISO 1600.

I think I might be able to do a little better with some effort.  This was just my first attempt.  Maybe I’ll try again the next time there is a clear night and Saturn is out.

Of course, probably can’t do THAT much better with just the equipment I have. This is just from a camera, no telescope involved.

But hey, RINGS!
