10 seconds is far too long an exposure for Saturn. Start around 1/10th @ ASA 100 and take more exposures around that shutter speed to determine the optimum. This site Covinngton Innovations has a useful exposure calculator that you can download. Input the relevant info and it will give you and approximate exposure setting.
