Sorry, but I just now re-figured out how to post. About a month ago, I updated my browser to the IE9 and I could view posts/text, but for some reason this site would not let me reply or post text into the text box. A click of the browser compatability icon fixed it.
Been some excellent images on here for which I wish I could have commented, (nice movie Ray.)
Anyway, here is my latest Saturn shot. I actually had some great seeing for this one!
And here is a link to my Saturns this apparation...
Gonna visit a few posts and give some kudos...

Thanks Ray and Chris.
You've got the 8SE and a planetary imager Ray. Just slap a 2x barlow on there and hope for good seeing!
Might make the weekly newsletter, but that's about it Chris. The fact that I got the moons with a 'small' aperture scope is something though.
One day when I get rich.....
Oh my.........! This is just spectacular. A truly amazing picture. I cannot get over how sharp this shot is. I could wish for a Saturn shot that was half as good as this......
