I reckon that has come out really well. Saturn is not a brilliant target this time round due to its relative lack of altitude.

Whereabouts in the UK did you take that from?

Hello Geoff

Thank you for you comments.
I thought Saturn was fairly high to be honest and in a good position apart from the moon close by.

It was taken from romford essex under 5 sodium street lights and moonlight to boot.
I did not use any filters,not even a IR cut.

May i ask why you have asked about location?
