Description

Despite the various issues I had imaging Jupiter, I decided to move on to Saturn. Since there was no alignment because of my earlier power issues, I had to manually aim at Saturn and track it with the hand controller.

Notes:

  • The rings no longer peek over the north pole of the planet.
