Another Saturn

I took the Lightbridge out to the local observing spot last night with a couple of mates. Sadly, the light pollution there is really getting out of control. Too many new houses and apartments going up. I hung out there for a few hours and then headed home to set up the LX200 to image Saturn.

Conditions were better than last time I tried (Seeing was about 3/5), so got a slightly better image. I also experimented using the camera's built-n digital zoom along with the 2X barlow I have. The image below is the best 700 from 2,300 frames. Still not 100% sharp and clear but decent color, and the rings look nifty.
