Well, I'll be out and about today. I have some out of town visitors and will be out and about with them.
So I'll leave you with a couple picture I took last saturday. Click on them to open them in a new window full sized.

The first two are of the moon I took just using a tripod. The first centered on purpose and the second offset on purpose:

The last one is of Saturn of course. I apologize for the fuzzyness of the picture due to my my inexperience, but I only got the adapter to connect the d-cam to the telescope saturday.
Anyway, save the picture and open it some sort of pictue viewer where you can zoom it a few times. You will start to see Saturns moons start to appear as fuzzy dots.
Four of the five most prominant moons are quite easy to spot in the picture, the last a little harder.
Look at the 2 o'clock position about 3 Saturn widths away and you'll see the first. Look directly below that moon and youll see the second.
The other two are directly left of Saturn (9 o'clock), just a couple or so widths away.

So enjoy, and I'll 'see' you tomorrow.

Thanks Brian. I didn't realize photobucket scaled images down so much though. The hi-res version is much better.

I may get around to posting that one some day.
