Great to see the Saturn image - I look at it last night and the seeing was very stable, but I couldn't face setting up all my imaging kit. You've done well given it is so low, and even more so for you at 55 degrees north. I ran your image through Photoshop and did an autolevels and autocolour and the surface details come out much more and the Cassini Division is more clearly marked out, and the orange glow eases off. If you want me to send you this version let me know.

A really nice image.

Thanks James. I had a cracking imaging session last night, and have uploaded a much clearer image of Saturn.
