Saturn from my rooftop about 10pm March 17, 2009.

Prime focus f/15. 480×360 logitech fusion webcam. Saturn is a pretty small target these days, and just a quarter turn on the focusing knob makes it invisible in the capture window of K3CCD tools. I just could not find it with a 2x barlow. It is somewhat overexposed, but the rings are as thin as I’ve ever seen them.

Here is a zoomed version of the above with the actual pixels captured.
