    I took these photo's yesterday at the Schothorst Observatory in Amersfoort trough a Meade 12inch LX200 telescope.

    The special thing is I used NO camera adapter, I just held my SLR against the oculair, focused and made the photo's.

    Enjoy!

    As usual, great pics, Jurgen. :)

    I'll advise anyone though who are Saturn photography lovers that the rings are tilting back North so in about a year (September 2009 if I'm correct?) the rings will be edge on as visible from Earth.

    Saturn really is the best thing to point your 'scope at - amazing view. Best get out there a look at it again before those rings are edge on!
