Imaging Saturn

On my recent trip to Australia, I caught up with astro-photographer Paul Haese.

Paul lives in my home town of Adelaide.

He recently won second place in the Astronomy Photographer of the Year award (in the solar system category) for this brilliant image of Saturn.

But what I found really interesting was seeing these two "raw data" images, which contributed to the final masterpiece.

It's all these colour-filtered filtered sub exposures which contribute to the final image.

It made me realise what an art form astro-photography can be.

Plenty more to come from Paul in future videos, but for now here is the video about his Saturn photo:
