Photo Title
  Beautiful Saturn
Time and Date taken
  6th March 2005 2325UT
Equipment used
  Celestron 8inch SCT, EQ5 mount, 2x barlow, UV/IR blocking filter
Capturing device used
  Philips TouCam Pro 2
Technical details
  954 frames captured at 15fps using video impression, all frames were then align stacked and processed in registax v3.

Seeing conditions were very good at the time I took this AVI of Saturn, but just as luck would have it with me:-) it clouded over shortly after I took these frames.

James, this is another excellent capture of Saturn and well worth the effort to go out and capture. Your technique is surely reaching the limits of your scope and the seeing conditions so keep up the good work. The next level in resolution will be watching when the jet stream moves away from over Ireland. Check out the Jet Stream weather charts.
