Saturn

Composite image of 10 separate exposures taken over a 5 minute time period. These 10 exposures were culled from about 40 exposures taken in sequence with the Starlight Xpress HX516 Camera. To the right of the large image are 3 raw images, 5 seconds apart to illustrate the extremely bad seeing. This is similar to the seeing experienced with the preceeding Jupiter images. The center image is one of the 10 that was chosen for stacking. The final image shows the crepe ring, Enke Minima, and 3 of Saturn's moons. You can begin to see the ball of Saturn showing thru the Cassini Division.
