Went out to look at the coolest thing in the Solar System last night. Saturn is so beautiful in the eyepiece, but at 18 seconds of arc it's still tough to image. I see a good bit of chromatic aberration, need to work on that.

D300, Explore Scientific 5 inch triplet refractor set up for eyepiece projection, 0.6 sec, ISO 800. Five images combined in PS.
