Saturn with Storm - 6 June 2018

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

Here is another of my contributions to the planetary imaging contest... this is Saturn taken on 6th June 2018 with my quest to image the Encke division with my 8SE. No Encke division.. although there is a hint of it there.. but I did manage to capture what looks like a storm developing in the edge of the polar region.

Taken with a my 8SE - 8" SCT with the Skyris 618C at F33.

 

Clear skies.

      So I originally planned to go to a good vantage point from the top of Pendle hill, watch out for witches whilst there. It is a local and well known Lancastrian landmark. However my wife is recovering from hospital treatment and so I didn't want to leave her so made do much closer to home.
      A short drive (2 minutes) took me to a place aside the motorway slip road but with a clear-ish view of the setting planets. I was only use 10x30 bins so the view was not particularly well defined but still impressive when considering distances and such. 
      Anyway it is in the bag but would like to do better if at all possible. 
      If the skies are more obliging tomorrow I may venture out with the EEVA set up and grab some data, however the forecast is not so good.
      Cheers

      Hi. Complete newbie to the hobby here. Just purchased a Meade Lightbridge 130 for my daughter as an upgrade to her Skywatcher Infinity 76. I'd like for her to see the rings of Saturn sometime with her new scope. Would getting a better lens improve her chances of a good view of the rings of Saturn? And if so, what lens would you recommend. Thank you
