Saturn at relatively low magnification.
a rare still night gave me the opportunity to image Saturn. I was beginning to wonder if i would get the chance this year. I needed to balance shutter duration with magnification to achieve clear bright frames and image scale suffered for it. Still it is always a joy to capture hints of detail on a distant planet.
