First Try at Saturn

First try at Saturn – Originally uploaded by Marc Arnault.

Flickr Find 2 of 5. I thought it was time once again to profile some of the great pictures that can be found on Flickr. Many astrophotographers can be found in the various groups all over the photo sharing website. Here are a few from the astrophotography group, which is always featured in the sidebar on Orbiting Frog.

Saturn is a great first target for astronomers taking photos. Its not as easy as you think. A lot of it depends on equipment, and then more on timing and skill. Here is someone’s first try. It may not be the best image you’ll ever see of the ringed planet, but no high-tech wizardry went into – just everyday stuff and a bit of hard work.
