Saturn and Titan!


Recommended Posts


My best record this year of the Lord of the Rings.
Nearly perfect Cassini division, Encke's slightly visible division and C ring though tenuous, in the correct coloring that is a steel blue. Many bands visible as well as the hexagonal hurricane and even its dark black tone kernels.
Titan was captured and processed separately, the assembly was made to make the photo more interesting. I tried to put it in the correct position in relation to the planet but they are disproportionate in size since for Saturn was used a resize of 140% and for Titan a resize of 200%.
Between the two catches there is an interval of 13 minutes.

Oh, that is pretty! For me right now, Saturn is too low on the horizon, and it will be for the next few years. But at its highest declination we'll really have a ball. A splendid one. With rings!
