Quote:Very nice ZZ! I managed to capture 5 of Saturn's moons last night too...
Quote:About detail...Does anyone else see these features? I see traces of Encke Division. I'm hoping Encke will be easier to see, as Seeliger effect occurs. But, it might have an opposite effect. And, the Maxwell gap appears to be there if I'm not mistaken. That is something I have not seen in ground based images of Saturn. Spots? Harder to see...I'll leave that to Trevor. Hexagon is obvious.Thanks for sharing, ZuoZhao.

Quote:Noise is random but true detail is constant which is why animating a few images taken, over perhaps, an hour, will always define the difference between noise & true detail.
