Description

I decided to take a look at Saturn with the new ultraviolet filter. Never seen a UV image of the ringed planet from an amateur before, so I had no idea what to expect. I was surprised at how dim it was even with 2x2 binning. The equatorial band faintly visible in the other wavelengths is prominent with this filter.
