Moon Occulting Saturn, 2/20/02

Saturn Emerges!

Saturn peeks out from behind the moon. Click on the thumbnail to see.

Saturn almost fully emerged. I desaturated the moon in photoshop for a more natural look.

No Saturn, but a nice moon shot taken while waiting...

The "line" in the center is Rupes Recta. I thought it was something on my scope when I saw it the first time. It's ~110 km long and ~275m high. HF13.

The pictures above were taken via my Olympus C-4040 digital camera, a Celestron 2x Barlow, an Orion 40mm EP, and my Takahashi FS-102.  I'm using the Scopetronix Digi-T adapter.  More to come as I have time to process...
