Couple more Saturns from YOF*

Recommended Posts

RGB captured last night and some IR captured tonight.  Only got one sequence of RGB as dont have a filter wheel so have got the filters on the nose of the camera and need to swap them in and out. Major faff! 

Not much in the way of details visible but reasonably sharp. 

*Ye Old Fullerscope. GPCam3 290m, baader RGB and 685nm IR.

'Reasonably sharp' you say. Pretty awesome, I'd say.

Thanks both. The blue channel really let's down the RGB image, I'm going to try synthesising the blue form red and green and see how that works.

That's pretty impresive from the UK, probably about as good as it gets I'd say with Saturn at such a low elevation. Have you tried using the red+green stack as a luminence layer to sharpen the RGB? It can really make quite a difference and you could also use the IR data as L, but I find that IR can throw the colours off.

Well done, Geof
