  captured with k3ccd tools, 10fps setting, 1000 frames were stacked and processed in registax v3.

After I processed the image I noticed a bright speck in southern hemisphere of the disk, I though at first this was a defect in the image, I then realized this was a major storm system on Saturn! It’s my first time recording an event like this! What a buzz!

Hoping for many more steady nights like this!
