First attempt at Saturn with new scope
I used a Celestron edge hd 8" SCT on a Celestron Cgem II mount. Processed in Registax 6. What do you think. Im new to this program.

Very nice!  Seems like you did well with the software.  Now slap a Barlow in there and really drive it up Saturn’s hexagon!

I never thought about using a barlow with the camera. I will as soon as the clouds clear. I have a gso 2x and a celestron luminous 2.5x both are 2" but have the 1.5 adapters for the camera
