Poor image but the first postable one of this year! Had a lot of problems this night. First of all my laptop kept switching itself off despite being on mains power. When I did finally get it to stay on I had all sorts of problems with my programs not working properly. Gave up on PHD2 in the end so my M51 data is naff! Decided that as I was out there getting cold I might as well try imaging Saturn. It was still low in the sky, so a lot of atmospheric disturbance in the video, hence the poor quality - not even showing the Cassini Division clearly.
