If you crop really hard with your 300mm lens, I think you could be able to show the ring structure of Saturn. The focal length was around 5000mm in the images I posted.

To think mere mortals as manikind could actually capture a God, let alone two! Awesome work, and thank you very much for your time, and sharing!

Why do you refer to them as Gods ?? They are just planets of our solar system , not Gods .

You understand the solar system, yet you leave out the important education that the Romans and Greeks left us? I suck at grammar, math, and pretty much a lot, but, I do give credit were credit is due :)Saturn
Saturn, Latin Saturnus, in Roman religion, the god of sowing or seed. The Romans equated him with the Greek agricultural deity Cronus. The remains of Saturn’s temple at Rome, eight columns of the pronaos (porch), still dominate the west end of the Forum at the foot of the Clivus Capitolinus. The temple goes back to the earliest records of the republic (6th century bc). It was restored by Lucius Munatius Plancus in 42 bc and, after a fire, in the 4th century ad. It served as the treasury (aerarium Saturni) of the Roman state. Saturn’s cult ... (100 of 274 words)

The Roman god of agriculture concerned with the sowing of the seeds. He is regarded as the father of Jupiter, Ceres, Juno and many others. His wife is the goddess Ops. Jupiter supposedly chased him away and he was taken in by the god Janus in Latium where he introduced agriculture and viniculture. This event heralded a period of peace, happiness and prosperity, the Golden Age.

In memory of this Golden Age, each year the Saturnalia was observed on December 17 at his temple on the Forum Romanum. This temple, below the Capitoline Hill, contained the Royal Treasury and is one of the oldest in Rome. The Saturnalia was one of the major events of the year. Originally only one day, it was later extended to seven days. During this festival, business was suspended, the roles of master and slaves were reversed, moral restrictions were loosened and gifts were exchanged. Offerings made in his honor were done with uncovered heads, contrary to the Roman tradition.
In contrast to his festival, Saturn himself was never very popular. From the 3rd century on, he was identified with the Greek Cronus, and his cult became only marginally more popular. That he ruled over the Golden Age is an extension to the Greek myth. Saturday is named after him.

Hi Huangyu, That is a great image of Saturn. Do you mind telling me what ISO you used when you made the video? 3200? or 1600?

Thank you!

I'd love to know how you got such magnification! I just attempted Saturn with a 2000mm scope and 2.5x Barlow and did not get near this magnification.

Could the distance the barlow is from the sensor have anything to do with that?

Usually this is done by placing a medium size, long duration thermonuclear fission reaction light source about 90million miles above and behind the camera. ;)
Amazing photos.

Ok, I'll be the jerk that jumps in and says fusion. :lol:

Edit: Ok, I AM a jerk.. I didn't notice this was three pages long, someone else said fusion already, and it's an old post to boot. Fail, fail and FAIL!

An old post indeed, but I'm glad it was revived and I saw it in 'New Posts'.
These are outstanding. Very well done.
