This is my best image of Saturn in the present 2013 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 700 frames at 15 frames per second. These were processed in Registax5, Maxim DL (to combine the RGB images into a single colour image) and Photoshop to produce the final image.

The picture was taken on the 5th June 2013 and can be compared with the similar image taken in May 2012 to see how the ring plane is increasing its tilt towards Earth [Alan Jefferis]
