A reflection of what? What ever the sensor has detected it is bright. It's not moon bright, but it's certainly brighter than any DSO as seen from someones back garden.

Had the original poster looked at saturn through the scope just prior to taking this image?


I'm by no means an expert so can't say for sure but I do know I've captured similar images and always put it down to light scattering around the eyepiece maybe as a result of the light being focused at the ep then reflecting off the surface of the phone lens back into the ep and highlighting the colour of the glass coatings within the ep?

Could well be wrong and happy to be corrected but just my 2p

And when I have Saturn out of focus it looks like a yellow circle. A blurry yellow circle at that so yeah that is why I think whatever the green thing is , Saturn couldn't possibly be it but oh well
