Very nice OP!

I just saw Saturn for the first time with my XT8 about a month ago--gives you the chills when it first swings into view, eh?

Beautiful! Did you black out the sky around Saturn? Or is it just that empty looking?

No alot of stars and its moons around it but the starshoot eyepiece wasnt sensitive enough to pick them up.

Nice work,Again!
I am jealous...

I have seen the mighty Saturn through my telescope eyepieces,but have yet to capture on film,due to weather/work,and only getting my camera connected recently.
One day..

Star and flag for not dubbing it with creepy music and claiming it was a UFO!
I hope this is your first step in a long voyage of exploration. Excellent work!

You had a few moments of perfect seeing there. Next step is to get some image processing software to grab the best frames!

huh wish i could have captured saturn myself on my 4 in. a little difficult using 20mm eyepiece with a camera taped to it too shaky to get clear view 4mm lens ha not a chance you should be able to get a closer image with the same quality... nice view though no doubt
