Astrophoto: Saturn – 10/04/2022

I had a sky full of faint clouds. I had enough time to get a photo between them.

Four days after I finally got my Jupiter photo, I took the chance to make one of Saturn between some clouds.

The evening was to test some things with my QHY after some INDI driver updates. The camera worked today and I have to see if she also will work in future. But my process was not good enough to handle a camera with a chip that small. In the end I used my EOS M100 to take a 3-minute video of Saturn and convert it into a photo.
