Saturn 18th March - through the smoke!

Recommended Posts

A bit blurry, this, but I thought I'd post this quick capture anyway.

Seeing was poor, and Saturn was sitting right in the path of smoke from my chimney (I really should have thought about the wind direction before I lit the fire to keep the family warm. They'll just have to go cold tonight!). Quite pleased to have caught some detail, despite everything, and it bodes well for a night with good seeing and no smoke. c1500 frames, SW 250PDS, 5x Powermate, SPC900 webcam. Stacked in Registax.

Nice one Luke! - Is that the storm I can see towards the top of the disc?

Thanks! Yes, the storm seems to have come out quite well despite everything, and visually I think I could just make out the prominent white spot which appears near the central meridian.

Fantastic image... Mine was no where near as good... Luke, I'll have to upload my video somewhere so you can process it for me... I have no idea what I'm doing in registax !

Malcolm, I'd love to have a go. I'm sure others would too! I'm still learning myself. Let us know where you post the file.

Thanks for the offer... I've just looked at its 700MB :)

I'll see if I can trim it down and zip it up or something....
