Saturn 17 April 2013 good seeing
      #5846145 - 05/07/13 05:34 PM Attachment (47 downloads)

I am trying to tweak my processing routine with the decent data I captured on the 17th. Any opinions would be greatly appreciated. This is by far my personal best on Saturn

Thanks,
Mitchell

What a triumph that is Mitchell! I can't recall a single East Coast USA Saturn image that's better. You've got the edge of the planet within the Cassini Division, signs of Encke appear clear and the colors are gorgeous. Very nice indeed.

Hey, I want astigmatism like yours!

Seriously, Mitchell, that's spectacular. Did you use an ADC for this?

Thanks everyone for the great complements!
Kevin no ADC was used for this image, it was just good luck for a change

Fantastic, Mitchell. It looks like you picked up a band in the SZ! I haven't seen that yet. Congrats.
