Saturn & Titan Pictures

Blogged by Xiao Sun on February 5, 2009 and tagged with Sample Images, Saturn, Transit, Animation.

Here are a few images of Saturn and its largest satellite, Titan, taken by Mile Salway with his DMK 21AU04.AS Astronomy Camera.

Here's my image + report of the titan transit. Unfortunately clouds came in from the South West and my night was cut short. But I was able to capture 3 frames, and below is an animation showing Titan just on the edge of the disc, and then crossing the face.
