I don't that I've seen such a good IR-RGB Saturn before! I was out this AM for the 1st time this Saturn season and the seeing was horrible, 2/5 at best! I'm inspired by you to keep trying despite the sinking altitude!

Thanks for the compliment, Mike.

Horrible has been the norm here, too.

I don't quite understand why. But, trying to get a "normal looking color balance" in AstraImage IR-RGB combine always seems challenging. Freddy has real good results with his IR-RGB combines of Jupiter using WinJUPOS...something I need to do with this data. When I took the TIF over to Photoshop, it was easier to play around with the color and actually have IR enhance the detail. Dumb luck, maybe.

Paul, you're not going to believe this but now I have a 2ft blizzard hitting tomorrow and will have to snowblow a 400ft path to my observatory. Please send some nice conditions eastward...

Regards,
Steve

Nice Paul, I hope to try for Saturn tomorrow morning, don't have high hopes for the seeing though, after that it's back to the rain here.

Ya, we clouded up Friday and it is spoiling weekend star parties. Thanks, Shawn and good luck with your imaging session.
