Yours truly

Saturn  At  Maximum  Inclination  (2002)

     Trying to take planet pictures with film is not often satisfying, but occasionally the seeing is good enough to tempt one into trying. This one was taken with my RC set up as described for the accompanying Jupiter shot: eight X barlow magnification of the f9 scope ratio to provide reasonable image scale on the 35 mm film. See this page for a webcam image.
