Photos from Kitt Peak

I recently visited Kitt Peak near Tucson, AZ on the night of October 18, 1999. My experience at Kitt Peak was incredible. The seeing was perfect for most of the night and I captured some great images of M57 the Ring Nebula, NGC 2438 another remnant of an exploded star, and spiral galaxy NGC 210. I also tried to image Saturn but lost the blue exposure. Here are the images I took while participating in the Kitt Peak Advanced Observer Program. Click on the images to see full size versions.

I attempted to get a color image of Saturn but lost the blue filtered image. Here are the green and red filtered images of Saturn.
