Hello all

 

Attached is an image of Saturn taken on the 18th September in good seeing conditions from Melbourne Australia.

 

Best 15% of 20,000 frames for each channel taken with Astronomik RGB filters with an ASI290 mono camera on a Skywatcher 30cm newt at approximately f/17

processed with AutoStakkert 3! and VC deconvolution.

 

UT as per image title.

 

Best wishes

 

Maurice

Gosh that is probably the best Saturn shot I've seen in decades from an amateur. Amazing belts right up to the big Hex..Bravo!

A really nice image, great resolution in the cloud bands. I must have been busy on the 18th of September, looks like the night to have been out on!
