We recently received an e-mail from Stephen Roche, an amateur astronomer based in Waterford (Ireland).

He submitted an image of Saturn and its moons, which he captured on April 08, 2008 at 22:44. For the capture, he deployed the DMK 31AF03.AS astronomy camera, manufactured by The Imaging Source.

Stephen commented the image with the following words:

Saturn and it Moons imaged on Tuesday the 8th April, 2008 at 22.44pm, using a DMK 31AF03.AS and a CGE 11 inch SCT. I captured an Exposure for the Moons first and then overlaid the LRGB images of Saturn itself to achieve the result.
