Hi all,
I just thought I would post the image I obtained from my back garden in New Zealand last week. I used a DMK31 camera fixed to my star diagonal to take the shot. Thanks for looking and clear skies. Larry

Beautifully done and super super sharp. Very impressive. I'm saving it.

Thanks all,
I find that seeing is King when attempting to observe/image planets. As it happens the seeing was quite good that night.I have had my telescope for 8 years or so now, I bought it when still living in the UK for my planetary/lunar viewing and have never regretted getting it. Anyway, clear skies to you all. Larry

That's a super nice image of Saturn Larry. Looks like a winning combo of scope and atmosphere.
