    Which was not my surprise when processing the photo and discovering that it had captured the star HD 168233 exactly between the C-ring and the limb of Saturn.
    This star has magnitude estimated at +9.25 and I never thought it would stand out so well due to the brightness of the rings and the planet itself.
    Despite the interval of only 4 minutes, it is possible to see the movement from one photo to another.
    Sorry for the poor viewing conditions, but still an interesting photo that leaves us quite happy with the result!

    Estas são algumas das melhores imagens de Saturno que eu já vi! E você tem uma magnitude de 9,25 estrela também? Uau! Estou sempre impressionado com suas imagens, Avani. Você é o mestre!:D

    My god! I am happy with the results too! Premium quality with a star in the middle has a bonus!

    Esta foto-montagem dos anéis de todas as 4 imagens poderia servir como o guia completo para eles. Detalhes absolutamente excelentes, Avani!

    E maravilhosamente linda também!

    Obrigado por compartilhar isso!

    This photo-montage of the rings from all 4 images could serve as the complete guide to them. Absolutely excellent details, Avani!

    And wonderously beautiful, too!

    Thank you for sharing these!

    Dave :cool:
