Saturn and Moons 28-02-2009 by Chrissyo Saturn and Moons 28-02-2009 by Chrissyo
This is my first bit of astrophotography this year. As you can see, it is Saturn and a few of its moons. Saturn is looking pretty weird at the moment with its rings nearly edge on. I like how it looks though.

The Moons are (in order from left to right) Enceladus, Dione, Tethys, Rhea and Titan.

As normal, the moons were a separate exposure to the planet itself. Each AVI was processed separately then combined later on.

Taken with my 10” Newtonian telescope on an EQ6 mount. A 5X Powermate was used with my DMK21AU04.AS camera. Registax was used for processing (the beta of Registax5, in fact).

Very sweet. I prefer this one over your latest one, though i only think that because of the panoramic feel to this one (it's not conventional and i like that). Is your DMK monochrome by the way?

Yeah, it's monochrome. I'm yet to venture out and buy a set of colour filters for it. =P

Nice toy nevertheless. You images of the ISS are fabulous, especially concidering the ones i saw were shot partially through clouds. Amazing.
