    Looks a bit hard cut around the rings but the cloud detail is awsome!:thumbup: The seeing must have been really good especially with the moon still out! Great shot! I can't wait till the end of this month & clear skies! I might even be tempted to get myself a ToUcam just for planetary stuff!:D


    Great job!:hail:

    Thanks guys, ShutteredEye it is definitely real, captured by me in my backyard ;)

    PlasticSpanner your right about the processing, I don't know why I bother processing images when Im tired, I always do a better job in the morning. If you get a toucam you won't regret it, my next purchase is going to be a 5X powermate to really bring out the detail in the rings.

    the reprocessed version, I left the natural tilt this time, I don't know why I removed it the first time :scratch:

    Now that one is awsome! :D Much better than my film attempt right now! 1 second exposure was just a little too long & I lost the details! :lol:Can't wait for the next clear night to have another go!!!:D

    Whenever I look at Saturn it always ends up standing on end! :lol:

    I know what you mean about wanting to process the images straight away! I got in from a nights observing at 4 am & still mixed chemicals, heated them & processed the films (disaster waiting to happen someday! :lol: )

    All just so I can have the negatives the following night!:D

    But you are completely forgiven as any image is fantastic when you're clouded out!:D
