Saturn and Family

This is the last of the days batch to process - Saturn. I captured 6 avi's and selected the best 75% to create this image. The Cassini division is quite pronounced as well as some of the subtle banding in Saturns cloud tops.

I also took some long exposure images without the barlow lens (1000ms each) and stacked these to reveal the moons of Saturn. Overlaying the original Saturn image on to the long exposure reveals their positions well. Note the long exposure has caused bleeding of Saturn into a cross - this actually just obscured Mimas which is very close to the ring system in the bottom left round from Tethys.
