Nice pic with a camera, have you tried taking a video clip and processing the file in RegiStax?

That's actually a very good idea! Never crossed my mind...will try that out...may need a slightly larger field of view with a new EP though as it really difficult to get the pic with my Baader zoom.

Thanks for all the comments, folks!

It seems we all have the same experience with Saturn...

I must apologise for the bad weather lately - I got a new eyepiece to enhance the view 2 weeks ago, when the weather changed :)

Yep wholeheartedly agree. Got my new 127slt a few weeks ago and was lucky to get some clear skies. Had a cheap telescope before this and never got good views so when I had it in my sights I was just blown away! Had to wake the kids up to share it as well

I recall the 1st time I showed my mother Saturn through my scope as a teenager and she was convinced I had just stuck a picture on the end of the telescope. It really is the one object that blows everyone away and that memory sticks with you forever.

Clear skies,

Matthew
