Got this image of Saturn. I nearly didn't bother because of the heat, but I hadn't seen Saturn yet this year so got all the kit out. Not as bad as expected by midnight! Not much detail on the planet itself, but the rings have some detail.

The image is a combination of a colour + IR run - 1500 frames each. The IR image was much sharper of course.

Taken with my 350P Dob, 4x Powermate, ASI224MC camera and my ZWO Atmospheric Dispersion Corrector (which really does seem to work!). Processed with Autostakkert and Paintshop Pro X9 + Topaz Detail plugin.
