A Meade DS series Saturn 114mm reflector telescope on a Meade alt-azimuth mount, and an Olympus C-750 UZ digital camera held up to a 40mm plossl eyepiece. Exposure time 1/6 second, at f/3.7, ISO 50.
I was looking at an image of Saturn I took and noticed a blob with an orange hue to the upper left of the Planet, so I checked my Starry night software and discovered that it was Saturn's moon Titan. I never thought I would capture an object as faint as this with a digital camera held up to a telescope eyepiece.
