New Image of Saturn, May 16th, 2012

Finally after weeks of rain we finally got some clear skies again in Belgium. Saturn is not an easy target being so low in the sky (max 33° alt.) but with decent seeing conditions good results can still be got. Here's one of my RGB series I did the night of 15 may along with the seperate channels.

My setup was a C 9.25, DMK 21AF618.AS camera and Astronomik filters. A Bresser SA barlow x3 was also used.
