Nice Night!

A wonderful night on the 12th and 13th March. Venus shining brightly and the sky clear. Orion looking spectacular in the Western Sky!

My target on the 12th March was Saturn with my Skywatcher ST80 and Toucam Pro II with IR (Infra-Red) block filter fitted. The image was taken with an Antares 3x Barlow lens, which took quite a while to set up! When the image was processed I used a stacked reference frame. The best 50 frames were stacked in Registax and then used this as a reference to align and stack the rest of the frames. Works really well!
