HI! I'm still much of a noob in astronomy so I'd like to get someone's advice on a picture....

I took it yesterday (mostly by luck) in a section of sky which happened to correspond with a similar triangular stellar configuration I found on STELLARIUM (at the same space-time-sky coordinates) which contained saturn at the left lower vertex of the triangle (where I took the picture)

Plus I'm pretty sure I roughly saw saturn and the rings when I looked through the scope myself.

Now talking about specs..... I used a 70X birding scope and my camera was a ridiculously common SONY CYBERSHOT 12.3 Mpix. Reason why I have my doubts if I'm clearly seeing saturn or if I just moved while I was taking the shot and the light randomly organized in a similar shape to saturn's?

Is it possible to take such a shot (obviously with a huge factor of luck) with the above instruments?

[I'm not quite sure how to post an image yet but I inserted it both ways (Attachment and HTML) just in case]

Thanks,


Alexis

Well, you can try resizing the image....or uplaod it to pictiger or some other site, and post a link here.  Hope that helps.
