First Attempts at Saturn

My initial return to astrophotography was inspired by the remarkable planetary images that were appearing on the internet that had been achieved using webcams. I equipped myself with a camera just in time to have a few tries at Saturn before it passed out of view. This is the best image I obtained during 2007. It is about 400 frames stacked in Registax and processed in CS2. The seeing was average at best. Barlow projection on Newtonian 10" f.4.3. Camera: unmodified Philips SPC 900NC (click image for larger version)
