Saturn with Titan
|This image of Saturn with its moon, Titan, at about 11:00 at the top of the image was taken using a 17 mm eyepiece in a process called "eyepiece projection" for 1.5 seconds. This means that the camera body didn't have a camera lens, but instead was married to the 17 mm eyepiece, which, in turn, was set (as usual) in the eyepiece cradle on the telescope. This makes the telescope a huge telephoto camera lens with extra (higher) magnification than with prime focus. This technique is ideal for planetary photography.|
