Some very good seeing last night, almost spoiled by some high cloud which tracked across the sky then miraculously disappeared around 11pm as the clouds approached the planets. Still working through the images of Jupiter at (near) opposition, but for the moment here are some images I took of Saturn at the same time.
The first is the best image from the 5 videos I took, I still can't really show the polar hexagon as anything more than a dark patch, but it is possible to imagine that the planet is visible through the Cassini Division. Planet shown 150% captured size.
The second image is a wider angle shot about 45 minutes later showing Saturn and 6 of its moons, with the moons shown larger and brighter than actual, with the "levels" tool used in PS to extract them. Moons shown are (L-R) Rhea, Enceladus, Mimas, Tethys, Dione and Titan. Shown at 100% captured size, you might need to click on it to see it in full size.
Capture details: Celestron Evolution C9.25 with TV 2.5x PowerMate and ASI224MC, 100 fps for 5 minutes, stacked in AS!3 with 3x drizzle, sharpened in R6 and final touches in Photoshop Elements.
