Description

Here I tried to catch saturn and some of it's moons in "one shot"

Therefore I had to set the camera gamma to extreme values, which causes the overglow
of Saturn itself.

The cam's dynamic range is too limited to get a "regular quality image" of both
Saturn and it's moons

P.S. at my latitude, Saturn culminates at 13° Altitude, but from my location I can only look
at SW at this low angle which makes things worse : Saturn at 11° Altitude!!
