Congrats on the pics Very chilly on Saturday night as well, finally got some alignment success, Saturn was a bit wobbly in the eyepiece being low down and over the next street's houses, but it had the occasional steady moment, very nice.
Thanks Pete, makes a difference getting some clear skies over your observatory for a change! Very happy to get Saturn , I thought it was going to be too low in the sky from my house. It was meant to be clear tonight but it doesn't look like it will clear up soon

Nice pics Chris, belts and ring division!
Altair Astro 102 EDT on Skywatcher AZEQ6GT pier mounted, Baader modded Canon 700D, 10" Meade LX200 deforked, Meade DSI3 OSC. Swift Model 831, Roll off roof observatory, plus loads of bits which may come in handy ...one day...
Done with the big Celestron, I'm guessing?
Did you use prime focus, or eyepiece projection?
Hi Paul, I was using the celestron C11 With the Dslr.The best pics I was getting were with no lens or barlow just straight onto the scope.The barlow made the image darker so I had to turn up the ISO on the camera to compensate which made the image grainier!
