Astrophoto: Saturn – 11/01/2022

My first Saturn with a dedicated planetary camera. A huge progress compared with my DSLM results.

The 1st test with my new QHY 5-III-462C planetary camera. It works!

I used the chance to test what i tried countless times before. To capture Saturn with the QHY462C. My 1st cam was not working correctly, it simply did nothing when it was too cold (15 degree celsius).

Now with a replaced camera, I was able to play a bit with Firecapture and got a 1st result.
