Saturn @ Opposition


The ringed planet shone at magnitude +0.7 and its angular size was around 19" providing a better view through telescopes. Yesterday night before taking the video of Saturn I made observation using my 10-inch Dobsonian Telescope and I could easily see its Five bright Moons.


For this image, I shot a video using my Canon EOS 550D @ Crop Video Mode attached to the 10-inch, f/4.7 Dobsonian Telescope. I then stacked the video in Registax 6 and post processed in Photoshop CS5.
