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!

Goodbye Saturn, You Served Me Well!


Drove under its own power for the last time on Saturday. Confirmed permanently dead by the mechanic this morning. 15 years and 9 months old. It is a sad day! Sniff. :-(
