Well this is my best image of Saturn to date. It was taken with a Canon 60D in movie mode.
A 1080p video was shot for about 6 minutes producing about 11,000 individual frames. I converted the movie to an AVI and loaded it into Registax where it aligned the frames and in the end stacked about 7,000 of the 11,000 frames.
Total time for aligning and stacking was about 2.5 hours.
I'm still really new at this and I was shooting the video within the city. I think I may be able to get better results if I shoot from a darker location with better seeing and possibly get an image showing the Cassini division in the rings. But for now, I am content with what I was able to get.
Video was shot at ISO6400, 1/30s at a focal length of 5000mm.
