2021 Saturn Imagery

Updated: Jun 25

Another Saturn image with the 8" EdgeHD. I adjusted the color balance during processing, so more neutral than yesterday's image. Seeing was still rather poor thanks to strong winds out of the southwest at 5-7 thousand feet.

Imaged Saturn this morning with my C8 Edge HD. I finally had a morning in which I didn't have to work early and it wasn't completely cloudy, so I was able to take the telescope out and image Jupiter and Saturn. Seeing was unfortunately very poor this morning, and a thin overcast was present, both of which combined to make the details on the planets hard to see. This is a far cry from the better images I was able to achieve last year.

Imaged Saturn from Pensacola, FL while on vacation with my little TV 60. The seeing was pretty good, but I was using a Manfrotto tripod with no tracking or slow-motion controls which limited the number of usable video frames I was able to capture. The image looked at least as good, if not better, than this visually, but the lack of focal length made it challenging to capture.
