Planets Images through a telescope Saturn. (processing Registax)

I think these are the most successful Saturn images that I have achieved so far. In the last image we see four of the moons of the planet, and by their distance from the planet, these are Tethys, Dione, Rhea and Titan.

Saturn has a surface of 83,7x bigger than Earth, which makes it the second largest planet in our Solar System.

This planet has a ring system which makes it visually unique. These rings stretch to 120.700 kilometers above the planet's equator.

An interesting thing to know about Saturn's rings is that between them are infiltrated satellites as Pandora and Prometheus, which acts as shepherds of these rings, preventing them to disperse.

Video images from which I extracted the planet Saturn, are here.
Other snapshot images are here.
