Saturn Baby!

My first image of Saturn


So there she is, my first capture of Saturn. I could use some optics between my camera and the telescope to enlarge the total area of sensor used, because it still is only a very small dot. But alas! The rings are visible (or should I use singular as it appears to be only one ring).

Since Saturn doesn’t get very high up in the sky, I also have to look ‘through’ a very thick layer of atmosphere which further blurs the image. But we’ve got some result, and I like it so far 🙂
