Red Lodge , Suffolk , UK.

Philips SPC900NC Webcam , Skywatcher Mak180Pro , HEQ5ProSynScan , 1.8 x Barlow.
Captured with SharpCap pre-processed in PIPP , stacked in AS!2 , wavelets in Registax 5.1
Stacked 5000 frames from 22000 shot and 1.5 x Drizzle.

First proper outing for the Mak180pro in good seeing ,
I could see the Cassini division and the subtle banding on the capture screen so just knew I was going to get a nice result , but never in my wildest dreams did I expect this to pop out of the stack.
