Hi all,

Here are Saturn images from April 22. I like the IR image, the RGB is only average.

Well done Paul,

Like yourself I think the IR really pops, you might be able to coax a little more out of the RGB image me thinks.

Cheers, Tim.

Nice IR result Paul, reckon it just comes down to the seeing for the RGB.

Cheers

I love that IR filter can cut right thru bad seeing. Paul, you are more reliable than the post office. :lol: Thanks for all your efforts, even when seeing doesn't cooperate.

I'm surer of you getting some good seeing sooner than us Paul.....you're heading into Summer and that must mean some fine nights: we're heading into Winter and are bedevilled with cloudy nights even when jetstream activity etc is neglible.

The iR is a good fall-back in poorer seeing as your images demonstrate.....but a really nice night will surely come for you, and as Paul just said, you are out there constantly so the chances of a ripper night must be good..!!! :fingerscrossed: :waytogo: :waytogo:
