minus: quel Saturno sembrava dipinto!

Joker: well, I'm not so satisfied with that pic of the moon....I must choose another phone...
P S the image capture by the telescope was transmitted in a monitor, but the real vision was exciting!

ive tried in vain to photograph saturn with my scope, i can get the moon no prob but saturn is hard!

ps love the shot of saturn, unless you process the image heavly you will only ever get a brigt shot of saturn. by process i mean filter and layer lots of different shots to get all the different colours . :)
