Tamás,

Nice work on planet Saturn. Always a wonderful target but difficult to capture. You have done a great job here.

Frank :)

Oh, what a beauty! This is really like staring through the eyepiece! I like the soft edges of the FOV too. Very well done, Tamás!

Tamas

Beautiful and accurate image of what Saturn looks like when actually observing. This is a great illustration to show others that have never observed Saturn yet under reasonably good conditions.

I'd like to send it on to those who are yet to observe the planet and its rings well.

Thanks for posting,

Mark

Tamás, this is a forum for sketches, not photos. :)

Just kidding, I love these sketches, they are really photorealistic! Well done!

Very good sketches, and the seeing was better than I usually get at home too. When the seeing is steady, a good small telescope and observer can accomplish incredible things. It seems your telescope has very good optics too to show that kind of details on Saturn, the sketches show eveything I can see through my own 6-inch. :bow:

Yes well done. I love how you captured just what we would see in the eyepiece.
