Saturn 13th June 2017

My first attempt at Saturn taken around 13th June 2017 near Limoges, France. Weather clear no wind, seeing was not great.

Scope: SW Skymax 150 (Mak-Cass) F/D=12 with a Televue 2x Barlow lens and a Baader fringe killer filter to remove any CA (not that there was much to speak of).

Camera: Canon 550D in movie crop mode (60fps) Movies were 3 mins long (10800 frames approx).

Processing: Pipp used to decompress images and select the best 3000. Registax used to stack and enhance the remaining frames.

Comments: I was pleased with the result, perhaps I was secretly hoping for a bit more detail but even from France, Saturn is low in the sky. I have a number of processed images and I find this one the best (less artefacts from wavelets processing).
