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 6/2

Had a nice night, and so I thought I'd try again and this time I got some nice pictures.  I have come to the conclusion that I need something with somewhat of a longer focal length, although these images arent too bad, maybe some of my better ones.  I tried photographing using a couple of different filters.  It seems the red filter gets the most detail.  I used a little color modification to make the images look a little more pleasing....

Photographed with red filter
Green filter
no filter

I did not use the IR blocking filter on any of the images.  Notice how over-exposed the last image is of Saturn's disk in comparison to the rings.  These CCD cameras seem to be far more sensitive to infrared than the cmos cameras are.
