Moon and Saturn in same FOV (right now)

Recommended Posts

I had no idea that the Moon and Saturn were going to be so close tonight otherwise I might have planned to image it better.

Just started a night with the lightbridge and stumbled on the most amazing sight.

The only way I was set up to capture it was by sticking my dslr lens to the eyepiece and snapping.

Not the best shot and I'm sure others will do it better justice but hopefully this shows a bit of the great sight?

If you are out at the mo whack a wide field in and take a look!!

Beautiful.  I just spent half an hour myself trying to get that.  But just as I got in focus a cloud came in, then 20 minutes later it went behind a tree...

Nice one Simon, no joy here I'm afraid so it's nice to see what others have got. 

Cheers

I took a run of 85 DSLR images of this - I was just going for the Moon this evening then spotted Saturn.  Still having issues processing them together in Registax but this is a single frame with levels tweaked in GIMP.
