    In observance of the Saturn opposition last month, here's the majestic sixth planet from the Sun, captured with the Orion Imaging Electronic Eyepiece through the Orion SkyView Pro 180 Mak-Cass a few years ago. Love those rings! Original music: "Starhopping". Enjoy!

    Thanks, my friend. I'm just a novice at the imaging game. Not willing to put in the big bucks for the serious gear, lol. I have fun with my little space cam. I'm glad you like my video :)

    Clear skies,
    Reggie

    That's probably similar to what that Eiffel guy said when he saw some rusty beams lying in a vacant-lot in Paris one day.....

    Dave :p

    Reggie, what I was implying was put through Autostakker 2 and registax 6 { it's all freeware} to make an image. I use a phillips Spc900nc webcam that cost $35 spc900nc 2nd hand . I wanted one for some 4 yrs. but, could never find one for less than $100. It uses a 1/4 in. ccd real sensitive and process using freeware that does ok.
