First Light with Gift Telescope

Celestron Ultima 2000*

This is combination of 22 webcam photos.  The first for WWC is the fact that this is the first photograph of Saturn on campus that shows the Cassini Division - the gap between rings in the upper left image of Saturn.

Watch for improved images in the near future.  We will obtain improvements by more extensive image averaging, better atmospheric conditions, and more skill from the observer.
