Still More Saturn here
Using the Celestron "NexImage" and Takahashi Toa 130 telescope, 2x barlow, 22 seconds of video processed in Registax.
A couple of other items below...
Above are M81 and M82 in Ursa Major. These are galaxies, with M82 being on the upper left looking like a small cigar. M81 is the rounder galaxy in the lower middle. I had hoped to take several images of this to stack, but that didn't work out. This is a single, 16 second exposure with my Olympus C4040 (16 seconds is the max. exposure of the camera) coupled to my telescope (Tak FS 102) via a 40mm EP (no barlows). As of 2006 I have a much better shot of these here. M81 and M82
Above is the beehive cluster, M44, in Cancer. This was an experiment to see what I could do with the digital camera. It's not too bad, but I think this one would show better color with film. Same data as previous.
