Description

I have never done an animation of Saturn's moons before.   Slightly improved seeing last night , after weeks of turbulence, allowed me to have a shot.  There are only three images in the attached, spread over about 25 minutes.   In each one, I layered a normal image over the same image with gamma turned up and then cut holes in the top layer to let the glowing fuzzball show through.  Even Mimas was visible moving in the glow next to Saturn, on this occasion. From left to right, Rhea, Mimas Tethys, Enceladus and Dione are the moons visible. Titan and Hyperion are far out of shot.
