Saturn 10th March 2009


Recommended Posts

Awesome Dave.

I was out until 11.30 last night and while the sky was clear, seeing was awful. Saturn was not as high in the sky as I would like and the resulting AVIs I took suffered from lack of contrast due, I think, to the glare from the nearby moon and the thick soup of carp that appears to be floating around in the atmosphere. The images coming over the screen of my laptop did not bode well. Imagine my surprise after processing them in Registax 5 and getting something not too shaby. My pics are posted elsewhere on this forum.

Keep up the good work,

That's a terrific image. Banding showing well but not over sharpened. Perfect.

Interesting the different experiences of the seeing. The seeing got progressively better for me. By midnight it was quite reasonable. We have had the jet stream over head and I think it was moving away over the course of the night
