After had a quick catch-up coffee session with my old pal, we did a quick and dirty shoot on Saturn, at around midnight.
Still low in the horizon, we did manage to get a decent shot.
This is the first time using TGVDeNoise in PI, and was pleasantly impressed with the result.
I did received a comment regarding certain part on Saturn which appears to be 'over-exposed'. My eyes are not showing anything such.
Is there any way via PI that will show if I were to 'over-do' my processing, thus making it over-exposed'?

Never tried a SCT that size before. my old 8 inch lx90 was sold off some years back, and now it was just a distance memory.

Going, going, gone. That was the feeling in Svalbard, Norway last month during a total eclipse of the Sun by the Moon. In the featured image, the eclipse was captured every three minutes and then digitally merged with a foreground frame taken from the same location. Visible in the foreground are numerous gawking eclipse seekers, some deploying pretty sophisticated cameras. As the Moon and Sun moved together across the sky -- nearly horizontally from this far north -- an increasing fraction of the Sun appears covered by the Moon. In the central frame, the Moon's complete blockage of the disk of the Sun makes the immediate surroundings appear like night during the day. The exception is the Moon itself, which now appears surrounded by the expansive corona of the Sun. Of course, about 2.5 minutes later, the surface of the Sun began to reappear. The next total eclipse of the Sun will occur in 2016 March and be visible from Southeast Asia.
