There was lots of humidity in the air so I think I can do better. Shot with a DMK31 through a Celestron C8 + 2x ED Barlow

Hi Symtex,

Was that a single shot? If so have you tried capturing a video sequence and feeding the result through RegiStax?

Bob.

That's looking very promising. As Bob said you ideally need to take multiple shots and run through Registax.

I look forward to seeing more.

BTW is it me or does it look like you've capture the storm - top right quarter?

I have capture about 400 frame. The transparency was not very good that night.

Have you put those frames through Registax?

The advantage of doing that it that it will ditch frames where the seeing is particularly poor allowing you to take advantage of the better frames.

This is a stack through registax Digz. Like I mention, it was very harsh condition. It not as easy at it seems. I certainly could have use more frame and an Red+IR Cut filter. I only had a luminance IR/UV with me.

It's a lot harder then it look to capture Saturn. The darn thing is so small. Even when I was shooting at 4000mm, it look kinda small. It's 1,2 billions miles away from us. There is a higher learning curve then I expected. This was only my second time around so I think it get only get better from here.

Thanks for the info. For your second attempt it looks like its heading in the right direction.

I can certainly make out some good detail coming through. Lets hope you get some good seeing conditions soon.
