Job 9:9

Job 9:9-10
9 He is the Maker of the Bear and Orion,
the Pleiades and the constellations of the south.
10 He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed,
miracles that cannot be counted.

Saturn 5-18

  After another weeks worth of rain, we had a somewhat clear night.  Transparency was about a 3.  Seeing was about 5.  Took some pictures of Saturn using the 127mm.  Although I'm not getting any more detail as I have been, this time I was able to capture Titan in the same frame.  Here's what I got this evening.  This photo clearly shows Titan in this slightly overexposed image.

   Here is a slightly resized image of the one below.   1500 frames stacked.

This small image above is probably the nicest image of the evening, it consists of 1500 stacked frames.

500 stack, resized.
All in all, the images tonight werent too bad considering poor transparency and high humidity.
