Incredible ! It is a first time that I can see on amateur astrophoto rings of Saturn in the shadow of the planet not completely black, but just covered with shadow showing Cassini's division and other details up to the place where disc starts.

I used the projection using a 20 mm orthoscopic eyepiece. If i'm not wrong to do the accounts should be 13.5 meters. The photos are always resize more 'big. I always work on resize at least 200% in processing. The moons are differentiated processing

Wonderfully done. Soft and detailed comes together nicely in your image.

It is true? Hard to believe. I checked my images and found nothing. If the shadow as light as C ring,I think I can get it easy.
