Saturn - First Success


Recommended Posts

Here’s my first successful of capture of Saturn since I recently started my planetary imaging journey :)

Seeing wasn’t great, grabbing vids through the breaks in thin cloud.

Taken with my SW 127 Mak on an HEQ5. Celestron x2 SV Barlow.

ZWO224C

Around 2000 frames

Sharpcap for capture

Astrosurface for wavelets, colour and sharpening etc.

You've done well there ! Banding on the surface and hints of Cassini division 👍🏻

Thank you 😊

Im going to put the data through AS! again, I’m sure I can get the stack better aligned.

Restacked with better alignment point placement, and a reduction in size and colour. Previous version was a bit too yellow.

Excellent image, what stacking and processing programs did you use.

Thank you John :)

Frames were stacked in Autostakkert and then the resulting file was then processed in Astrosurface.

For some reason my laptop won’t let me download Registax for security reasons, so I use the wavelets functions in Astrosurface.
