Saturn RGB 16th September 2021


Recommended Posts

Probably my last Saturn of this season as it is getting more difficult to capture from my location. Transparency was fairly good but thin high cloud was playing its part with a yo-yoing histogram.

C11 Asi 290mm Baader rgb filters Processed in AS3 AA5 PS6 Reg6. With a final white balance in Reg6.

Very nice! The shadow of the planet on the ring is becoming very prominent now. I agree the best of the saturn season is over - on a clear night it takes several hours after sunset for the thermals to die down sufficiently at this low elevation, by which time Saturn is over the meridian and dropping down again. Next year it will be much higher.
