Hi Eric,

Your Saturn images are terrific. I know how difficult it is to image from the northeast (I'm from Massachusetts) and you do wonders with what little Mother Nature gives you.

Clear skies,

Hi Damian,

Another great image from you, with nice color and details. Hopefully more days of better seeing will be coming your way, more than once a month. Thanks for posting.

Clear skies,

Re: Saturn Opposition 2005.

Posted By Edward Roach

Hi Damian,

A great image with plenty of detail and your usual superb processing. You were fortunate to image Saturn so close to opposition.
I haven't had a good night to image in over 3 weeks and the forecast calls for 18" of snow. I guess I'll be shoveling more than imaging this winter.

Clear skies,

Hi Damian,

That's an outstanding image! The Enke division can be seen around a significant portion of the rings, incredible.
Thanks for sharing.

Hi Damian,

An incredible image as usual from you. The Enke division shows around a significant portion of the A-ring. One of the best, you or anyone else has ever done. Thanks for posting.

Hi Eric,

Another incredible image. This appears to be one of your best this year.
I was out the same evening in the bitter cold in Massachusetts, but the good seeing just never arrived for me. All I got was hypothermia for my trouble. Oh well, there's always next time.

Clear skies,

Hi Eric,

With the images you have taken lately, you'll soon be considered one of the great planetary masters. I haven't seen anyone in the U.S. who has taken better Saturn images than you.

Another Saturn from the Northeastern U.S.

Posted By Edward Roach

Hi all,

We had some good seeing in the northeastern U.S. as everyone can see from Eric Todd's image. This was taken from southeastern Massachusetts on February 1, 2004 at 4:17 UT. It was 10 degrees Fahrenheit when I took this image, I have to move to Florida smile
