The O.A.S. Astrophotography Gallery

A place for members' images...


This lovely little colour picture of Saturn was made by photomultiplying several 35mm colour negatives together and then processing to bring the best from the limited ability of the resolution available. Now that Saturn is on show again it's time to snap its wonderful rings once again!
