This is my best image of Saturn in the present opposition period taken using the DMK 41AU02 video camera on the 14" LX200 telescope at Durlston. As this is a mono camera a colour filter wheel was used to produce red, green and blue-filtered images. The video sequence at each filter setting was approximately 500 frames at 15 frames per second. These were processed in Registax6, Maxim DL (to combine the RGB images into a single colour image) and Photoshop to produce the final image. [Alan Jefferis]

The picture was taken on the 29th of May 2012 when Saturn was about 6 weeks past opposition.
