The first image of Saturn came out this morning ( May 29, 2022 ) after several nights trying finally the seeing cooperated, we still don't have any big active storm in Saturn's atmosphere, apparently everything is calm there, the inclination that is already getting more interesting every year, soon we will be seeing the ring fully in profile.

There's been some really nice work from Brasil in recent years - this is a great example of it continuing. Nice job.

Many thanks, the sky has been helping around here, I hope I can continue making good captures so that I can always publish good images

Congratulations, it's a great capture, very nice. 

 

Which software used for capture, stack and processing?

 

Thanks.

What do you mean by "soon we will be seeing the ring fully in profile"? I thought that over the next few years Saturn will be tilting so the rings will be less and less visible?

Exactly, we won't see the rings in their entirety, but just a strand looking from here on Earth

 For capture I use FireCapture, stacking I use AS3, to finish I use Gimp and PS

And given the title of this thread, Jupiter would be where? :)

Jupiter will still capture it, it's still pretty low around here, so I'll take advantage of a topic just to post images of Saturn, Jupiter and Mars this year, as I did in 2021

I received the new Player One Uranus C IMX 585 planetary camera a few weeks ago, but I was only able to test it on two occasions and both nights the seeing did not collaborate as usual, still waiting for that perfect night around here, but a good image came out to see how the new camera behaves and what a spectacular camera, extremely low noise, giant resolution, simply excellent, I recommend Player One Astronomy cameras to all astrophotographers

Here are some recorded images of Saturn, excellent atmospheric conditions, recorded several equatorial bands, a storm at the north pole and the famous hexagon, image taken on the nights of August 23, August 24 and September 1

Jupiter when I made the captures was still very low around here, only 43° of altitude, at that moment the seeing didn't help much, but I recorded it anyway

Saturn at night 2022-09-02, it was almost 2 hours of excellent seeing until it got worse, several interesting details such as the hexagon much more visible due to the good conditions, the storm at the north pole may be on the other side of the disk or it's over, several equatorial bands recorded as well.

Your image of Jupiter looks like a sharper version of what I capture. Your image is quite stunning!

Many thanks , when I get a good night with good seeing, it will be much better, around here I still can't wait for Jupiter to get higher in the sky, because of my work

A fantastic night, excellent seeing helped to record countless details in Saturn's atmosphere, the north pole storm should take time to dissipate

great images, do you have a feeling for which scope is better the C11 or Meade 12", from the shots here the c11 seems to be sharper  but then the 12" shot says the seeing was poor.

Cheers

Many thanks, In my opinion both are great, but I prefer the C11, much lighter, more compact and not far behind the meade 12" in terms of resolution.
