Hi all,

This is my first Saturn image of the season. Taken with a Meade LX90, 8" SCT at f/30, with a ToUcam Pro II. 800 out of 1150 images stacked with Registax. Finally got my scope collimated correctly and it shows. Best seeing I've ever had, about 6/7 out of 10. I hope I don't have to wait until next year for seeing this good.

Thanks for looking,

Ed Roach

Thanks for the kind words everyone. Hopefully the weather and seeing cooperate soon, as I haven't gotten a decent image since then.
