I used a Meade 8inch telescope and a canon 500D DSLR camera mounted on the telescope with a T-ring to capture the photograph.
Though it is the monsoon season in India tonight was a quite clear night. In this photograph I have captured Saturn and the star Porrima using my telescope and putting the camera to prime focus. It was enjoyable to see Saturn again after the end of summer season.
