saturn 1
This time I took about 40 images of Saturn (prime focus, still), and picked the best 15 or so for Photoshop processing.

I also managed to get Jupiter into the frame with a 2X barlow, and took a few images. Too few, as it turns out, and the exposures were too short. I didn't write down how long they were, but the planet barely shows in the raw frames. Ugly image.

sat 2
Reprocessing this raw data a couple of weeks later results in this image.
