Saturn

Using the setup described below in my last post, I have now started exploring the world of astrophotography and my first attempt is shown below. To say I am pleased with it is a bit of an understatement!

The original images were captured as a .mov file on a Mac laptop and then processed by an image stacking programme (Keith’s Image Stacker). A little fiddling and out came the image you see.

For the more technically minded. the camera was plugged into a 2x Barlow lens which in turn was inserted into the Vectis Astronomical Society’s Meade LX200.
