70mm F/10 refractor, 2X barlow, and NexImage 5. 500 frames stacked. Not bad for such a small scope, eh?

Ken,

Here's your image with some corrections in Photoshop and Camera Raw. You can do a lot of the color correction yourself in Registax. I think it's a pretty good image, especially for a 70mm! The camera does give images a greenish cast unless you change the settings. Even if you don't, you can correct it afterwards.

Thanks and keep it up!

Nice effort for a small scope.

A 70mm is surprisingly good. The few times I imaged Saturn I was matching (virtually) the visual view . Nice job - better than mine too!

I tweaked it a little as well.
