Occultation of Saturn by the Moon: My Story

Post by smallmadtv » Mon Jul 09, 2007 12:39 pm

Hi all,

It's my first post here, and i would like to show you one of my best picture since I start to capture sky images 1 year ago...

It's the occultation of Saturne by the Moon as seen in Belgium... 22 May 2007.

Taken with a MAK150 (1800mm) - Focal Extender x2 - and a Canon 400D.
Image processing is quite simple 2 Median cut and 2 unsharp mask.

It was a cloudy night, and from nowhere a hole in cloud allow me to take few pictures just at the Right Moment !!

I hope you enjoy it as I do!

Best Regards
