Focal Length F/14.6. No Barlow.
A 1.6x is a bit too long. I need a 1.4x or 1.5x.

Thanks Jim. Which ZWO camera and what was your effective focal ratio?

Thanks everyone for the kind remarks. I used a ZWO color camera. I captured about 10,000 frames at approximately 80 frames per second so about 2 minutes total capture time. I then stacked
about 5,000 frames with Autostakart (?). After stacking I used wavelets in registax and then photoshop to process.
That is a really beautiful image! Crisp and clean. Obviously you have great equipment and favorable seeing but I echo the request if you wouldn’t mind sharing your acquisition and processing workflows.
Yes it is everybody's
favorite, mine included!
During public events at our observatories, I always save Saturn for last, not telling anyone what they will see next. I LOVE the reactions and exclamations of "It's not real!" That never, ever, gets old for me.
Very nice. Pretty little planet indeed, everyone's favorite planet.
