Those are awesome photos! I love Saturn and its' moons. I see 5 moons, though? Not 4? A dim one just right and up from Saturn!

Thanks, Kyle! I love Saturn too,

 

Yes, there are 5 moons on the pix, Titan far up to the right and other 4 close to the planet.

Amazing. Thank you for sharing.   I'm using a canon 500d (unmodified) which I have no manual control of the video for lucky imaging which could be one problem  . Are you using the mount it came in ?

Hi,Planetz! Yes, I´m using the original mount. It´s a little unstable, but the lucky imaging helps to choose the best pix.

I decided to try my svbony  moon filter(the lighter one that is reddish) on mars on Saturday to see if it would help the glare and I noticed it defintely helped out on the darker land masses of Mars.
