Saturn through the years, taken with various telescopes from 6-14 inches in aperture.

Comet Yi SWAN heading toward the Double Cluster- A small comet with obvious movement across the sky. Canon 50D and 200mm lens. The comet is the small green object in the lower right corner of the frame.  An enlarged crop of the frame provides a clearer view of Yi-Swan.
