Hi all

I took a few images of the Moon and Saturn during the recent Occultation and created this summary image. All taken at prime focus with the TakFS60 & DMK51.

Looked stunning visually!.

Thanks for looking!

I see one lone Saturn on the right side. Very nice! Of course it was the Moon moving right to left, not Saturn moving left to right.

Hi Trevor

In the scheme of things it was quick but I was surprised how long it took for Saturn to reach the limb - it seemed to hang there for ages - once it reached the limb it was a fast disappearance.
