Saturn and Moons

This is a composite image, one for the moons and one for Saturn. Both taken with a 12″ LX200R SCT scope and DMK21AU618.as camera with LRGB filter wheel. Saturn also taken using a 2.5x Powermate
The moons were a sort stack of the best 50% of 500 frames.
Saturn, 3 x the best 50% of 500 frames LRGB, stacked with AutoStakkert, the 3 sets of LRGB images were then stacked into a master LRGB set. In Photoshop, deconvolution, curves and sharpening, LRGB aligned and merged.
Moon image scaled to match Saturn, and rotated to match. Blended as one.
