Saturn with OMC 140 & portamount

Recommended Posts

Best bet would be to use as high a magnification as you can manage, set the scope ahead of the planet to allow it to drift through & snap through the eyepiece as it passes through the field of best definition. I don't think the results would be very good. Saturn is pretty faint & you'd likely get some motion blur ... and the image would be noisy, and you'd not be likely to catch the instants of steady seeing.
