Visit Worldwide Topsites

Video of Saturn through the telescope.

In this article we watch videos with the planet Saturn through a telescope. At that time, the beautiful ringed planet was at a distance less than the average of 1.4 billion kilometers from the Sun, namely 1.34 billion kilometers. Also at that time, the planet's rings were tilted toward us.

I wanted to see this planet at different approaches and exposures. The atmosphere was severe observing the planet when the camera was zooming at maximum, but in moderate zooming Saturn was seen acceptable. At times we can distinguish separations between rings (Cassini division), and even a bit of features on the planet.

Snapshot Images in these clips are here.
