When I obtained this image of Saturn I had decided to try and get as much detail in the ring system as my scope and seeing would allow. I used both my Baader IRB filter and Baader Contrast Booster filter. I imaged in Black and White as the contrast filter introduced a false colour cast. I am pleased with the result as I managed to image the Encke Minima for the first time.
Technical details: Tal-2m + Philips TouCam Pro and Tal X3 Barlow + Baader IRB filter and Baader Contrast Booster filter. 300 frames captured K3CCDTools. Brightness 80% (152 on meter), Gain 50%, 1/25sec, Gamma 0 - 150 frames stacked using RegistaxV2.0 LRGB.
