I wanted to post my first time image of a planet and wanted to get any opinions. I used Sharpcap to get the image then used AutoStakker 2 to stack the image then tweaked it a bit in Pixinsight.  I did not alter any of the colors in the image just sharpened it a bit.

 

I just downloaded Pixinsight on a trial and did not do that much with it just used the Restoration Filter and Sample Format Conversion that I found on You Tube.

 

Any constructive criticism is welcome since this is my first attempt at imaging or any other way I could improve the image with Pixinsight.  I put the image out on Astrobin hoping to get some comments.  Would that be the right place to put my image to get any comments or here?

Looks good for your first time. Your best bet for any help you need would be on the Solar System Imaging and Processing forum here on CN. Also helpful is including specifics like scope, camera, frame rate, and length of capture.

There's a red edge that I've seen on my Mars pics, but in your Saturn it's rather pronounced.

 

I don't know if it's CA (¿perhaps caused by a Barlow?) or just atmospheric dispersion, ¿Anybody got a clue?

 

I'm placing it inline for everybody to see:

Dispersion. Red on bottom, blue on top.

You can realign the channels in Registax.  At some point you can try and ADC, that will help too.
