Saturn and some moons

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

A recent image of Saturn showing an interesting formation of its moons. The capture was taken in a single video but in processing I used masks to increase the brightness of the moons. Enceladus is almost invisible, but with a good screen you will be able to see It.

C11" Edge HD + ASI224mc

Nice work! some crisp details there on the globe and rings.

  Is this at native FL to fit the moons on the chip?

Hi Lucas, another superb image from you to go with that brilliant Jupiter that you posted recently. I am not at all envious, I'm not, really I'm not.... :Envy:

Cheers, Geof

Thank you Craig.

The capture was made with a 2x Barlow, but using chip full resolution to fit it all.

Brilliant! When you say single video what do you mean?  I am familiar with creating AVIs and using the 10 or 20 or 25 percent ( or what ever  number) best framesto process in registax.  I have always considered each AVI and single video--are your referring to some other process?

Hi Rodd.

Sorry. I'm late to answer you.

You are right. I captured only one AVI and It was stacked with AS3. 👍😉

Thats OK--the results are incredible.  I use the same scope and can't do planetary very well at all.  Your image is text book

Saturn really jumps out! Very well-defined rings and divisions. Striking color, too. And those moons - lovely!

Cheers,

Reggie :)
