Description
This was our first image of Saturn taken in LRGB and resampled to 150%. We managed to capture the data in between clouds from our driveway in Hendersonville, TN, USA on the evening of May 8, 2011. Being new to planetary imaging, we were not expecting much, given the conditions, but were pleasantly surprised with the results. We still have lots to learn and plenty of room for improvement, but are really enjoying planetary imaging so far.
