Saturn February 7, 2013

This is my first attempt to image Saturn this season. Imaging Saturn will be more favorable in the months to come as it nears its closest approach to Earth on April 2013. Image taken by a Sky-Watcher 100 ED 4-inch f/9 refractor on a Kenko NES mount, using a Philips SPC900NC web camera, 2 stacked 2X Barlow, and a Baader UV-IR filter. Photo Credit: Anthony Urbano.

First attempt in an imaging technique called eyepiece projection. It seems this setup produces better images than using two 2x barlows stacked together to produce the same image scale. Photo Credit: Anthony Urbano. For more images of Saturn, click here.
