Saturn and Mars 02-05-2010 by Chrissyo Saturn and Mars 02-05-2010 by Chrissyo
This is essentially just a repeat of the image I uploaded a few months ago. Saturn and Mars are still up in the evening sky and I don't have much else to shoot at until later in the year when Jupiter rises earlier. Mars has really decreased in size, and Saturn's rings have closed up a bit.

The image at the bottom is Saturn with its moons at the time of image capture. From left to right the moons are Dione, Rhea, Tethys and Titan.

I'm not really happy with how I've arranged this image. I played around with it for a while but couldn't get it quite how I like it. Any ideas? =P

Taken with my 10” Newtonian telescope on a standard EQ6 mount with various barlows/Powermates and a DMK21AU04.AS camera. Registax was used for processing.

I love it =)
I think it woud be nice if you just had the boddom image, the same length as it is now.
It gibes you a great idea of the distance between the moons, and Saturn itself..
Im saving up for a Newtorian and a motor so I can take images like this! But its an expensive hobby! -_- x

Is the scope well collimated? The images seem a bit blurry.

I did collimate it before going out, but it was a bit of a rushed job.

Super! Looking forward for more of Jupiter =D

Since you asked, maybe a couple of faint horizontal lines that break the image into 3 rows? The lines needn't extend from edge to edge.
