Thanks for sharing.
It's fun, when you get images - and I think I can see Rhea too.

When imaging planets, it's quite common for people to capture a video stream and stack the individual images to get a 'best of' image.

Yes, I shall have to get a web cam for planetary and sort out the alignment/tracking thing for wide field prime focus. But I was never able to capture anything with the DSLR on the Dob so I'm quite pleased this was so easy! (Even at this level of quality! :D)
