Home made 10" f/5 Newtonian. TV 5X and Philips ToUcam Pro camera. Combination of 200 frames in Registax.
Saturn was getting pretty low in the sky when this exposure was made. Atmospheric seeing limited the resolution. Titan's shadow as clearly visible in teh eyepiece as it started across Saturn's surface.
