MAGNIFICENT SATURN Taken by Noeleen Lowndes on July 1, 2017 @ Gold Coast QLD Australia

At last I was able to get an image of the beautiful planet Saturn in the night sky, we have had so many wet weather systems passing through that it’s been nearly impossible to get an image…. but now I’ve got my picture, Yay :-)

At this very moment, Saturn’s magnificent rings are completely open and facing us here on Earth, with the planets northern pole displaying that incredible huge hexagonal weather system in its atmosphere, Yes, Saturn has amazing weather too!

If you have a telescope, you must not miss taking your scope outside and having a look at this most beautiful planet in our solar system before it’s too late….

Images taken with a Meade 10inch LX200 telescope at prime focus and a ZWO ASI120MC-S camera with a 3x Barlow lens attached, AVI movie file processed in Registak6 and PS CS4.
