Oh, would it not be absurd if there was no objective state?
What if the unobserved always waits, insubstantial,
till our eyes give it shape?

— Peter Hammill

Saturn

What we have here is a combined 1x1 1,131 images taken thru the AstroTech 111edt with 0.09 hundreds exposure each. I was going for 3,000 images but Saturn ran into a tree. Ever see a tree after Saturn hit it? Tree is ok, Saturn disappeared! I used an Orion 2x lens to magnify the planet. Next show will be Saturn using a TeleVue 5x lens. Maybe I should just use a larger scope? Click on the Original to see enlarged image. 4-19-12
