Saturn. The Cassini
visible, and is apparently caused by a 2:1 resonance with Mimas.
I took the images through the 12” Meade LX200 in Peyton’s
Observatory, using a
Canon EOS 60D. For image acquisition, I used EOS MovRec v0.3.3 (through a
virtual machine), recording in video with half-second exposures at 500 ISO. I
took about 5 minutes of video, which I then ran through Registax 6 and clipped
to the best ~10% of exposures after alignment. I then stacked, ran a
wavelet transform, and cropped, yielding the image you see with your two eyes.
