Taken on the night of 26/04/10  using a 450D with H-alpha clip filter attached to the prime focus of a Meade 200mm f/4 Schmidt Newtonian. Using an exposure time of 1/4sec at ISO 200 I captured 20 subs in RAW mode and the camera set to take monochrome images. These were then stacked in Registax5 and treated to a mild use of wavelet sharpening. Final processing carried out in Photoshop.

Taken on the night of the 12th Feb 2010 at 23:18. Using a C9.25 @ f/6.3 and Canon 450D (Hutech mod) I captured subs at varying exposure times,30secs for the core detail to 5mins for the outer regions of the nebula. Using a freeware program,easyHDRbasic I stacked the subs to give me this high dynamic range image. Final processing was carried out in Photoshop CS. Mount was an EQ6 Pro and autoguiding was carried out  using an 80mm f/5 refractor,Meade DSI and PHD. An Astronomik CLS clip filter was used to cut out the local light pollution. Alun Halsey

This was night of good seeing, and I waited to close to culmination for Saturn, so I think this picture shows something close to the likely best standard we are going to be able to get on Saturn this apparition from the UK. So it may not be worth taking a lot of images of, but leaving it to our southern hemisphere counterparts, who are achieving much better results. Transparency was very low and the blue channel at 8 fps and maximum gain was still very weak. The belt colours seem very muted this year. The brown north polar collar can just be seen and brown NTB.
