first stacking

My first attempt at stacking!

This actually (surprisingly) worked quite well! This is a method where you take a video and use image stacking software to analyze the frames, discard the poor/blurry frames, and combine the remaining frames – generally for a boost in detail and reduction in noise. I didn’t have a lot to work with, because Saturn was projected as a very small dot on my sensor. Nonetheless it was able to pull out a decent amount of detail!
