I've seen them both in an actual telescope not a video, and it was amazing. Saturn looked unbelievable. You could even see three of its moons with the telescope I looked through.\
The moon part of your video is great, and looks exactly like it looked when I used a telescope. Saturn is very blurry though. That's too bad. Saturn is the coolest looking planet. It really does look unreal, almost cartoon-like in a way.

I love it! How envious to have a nice telescope to see the heavenlies! S&F.

I will be watching, too...but from my backyard with only my myopic eyes as I sleep out under the stars, that is, if the clouds let me. ISS is supposed to be very bright here this week, but I doubt I'll wake up to view it.

Can you tell me what star Saturn is close to right now? Due to the months and months of rain I lost my bearings on the planets and when I saw it again for some reason it was made even more fascinating by its very nearness to the star.

Many thanks! Porrima. I will know its name as I gaze upon it tonight.

This will be the third summer I've spent outside and it is always a dread to be forced back in, in the fall. It's amazing even thought I don't know many of the constellations (I tend to make up my own) nor the smaller stars just the familiarity with their positions is enough for me to instantly realize that something is out of place.

There are certainly many more and brighter satellites zinging overhead than ever was when I was a child that I'd eagerly wait for the dim one or two that would show for the night.

Thanks Ghost375
Yes it's awesome to look through a telescope! you will see much more details than a camera
i like to watch through a Binoviewer, thats a binocolair for a telescope and than you will see more depth.

You are welcome Dalke07


About Elenin my camera is not able to catch tiny objects, you will need a real good camera for it, but perhaps in a few month's
when i will see and able to get a picture of it, i will let you all know!

Great pictures! I was able to see the moon a few days ago but cloudy since then.
A bout a 2 months ago I viewed saturn with my Celestron 4.5", quite smaller than your 11", could make out 2 moons also without a Barlow. Clear Skies!
