    Your images are brilliant!!!! What exposure time did you use for the DMK21 image?? I have a list of new things to buy for my scope and towards the start of the winter I'm looking to upgrade cameras? What would you suggest??

    Hi all This was the first image of Saturn i had taken and only now getting back into using my scope and imaging!! The image was taken last September (approx) with my Phillips SPC900nc, using Sharpcap and AS2 can anyone advise how i improve and get a sharper image? do i need to play around in photoshop or are there any other avenues to explore
