Saturn Occultation - 10 Sep 2001

Go to the "Mogg Adapter" Web Store for your Astronomy Imaging needs

Camera Philips Vesta 675
Scope Meade LX-90
Location Salt Lake City Utah - USA
Setup Vesta through Mogg Adapter at Prim focus. Equatorial alignment. Images captured with Colin Bownes Vega program. No IR filter (forgot about that )
Exposure I set the exposure to get detail on Saturn. Moon is therefore over exposed. Their was no way to get both, I tried. I later got some moon surface images and will try and make a composition using these images. See below
Processing All images are raw are frames. I used AviEdit to create the animated gif file shown above from the raw BMP files captured by Vega

Compilation - Moon surface overlaid on original image.
Both single raw frames - smoothed and un-sharp mask after overlay
