This is my second try with the Celestron planetary camera, and this time I made proper use of codecs and acquisition resolution. But the image is severly color-challenged as I had the white balance way off, much too green. I combined 3 videos of 2000 frames each at 2x resampling, and stacked the best 15% (900 frames). Saturn was about a week away from opposition this night.

my back yard; April 22, 1:30-2:00 AM, ; T=-2 C, seeing good. Celestron NI5 on 150mm with 2X Powermate; no filters. Stack of 900 images (best 15% of video frames).
