Californian Image of Saturn by Steve Bryson

Blogged by Jonathan Maron on June 19, 2008 and tagged with Sample Images, Saturn.

Steve Bryson is an amateur astro-photographer, who is based in Marin, California. He purchased a DMK 21AF04 astronomy cameras several years ago.

As with many other astronomers, Steve quickly discovered that his camera was ideal for capturing images of the night sky. He recently submitted some of the images he captured with the camera.

Below, for example, is an image of Saturn, which he captured in 2006:

To capture the image, he used Astro IIDC on his MAC and performed post-processing with Lynkeos, Keith's Image Stacker, Astrostack and Photoshop.

His telescope is a Meade 12.5″ Starfinder with a Dob Driver II for guiding.
