A quick visit at Saturn

While I was observing the moon I decided to quickly step by at Saturn. The image got better than I expected and so I am sharing it here 🙂 The Cassini Division (the thin black line in the ring) is clearly visible even at this low image resolution. The raw data was recorded with a DMK31AU03.AS camera and then post-processed with Registax.

Clear skies!
