Saturn and the LPI

With a near full moon  and washed out skies last Saturday night I decided to get some more practice using the LPI that came with my scope.I have used it before with a bit of success imaging the moon but have never had much luck getting shots of planets.I don’t know why imaging planets is so tough?.Below is a shot that is without a doubt,the best shot I have ever taken of the planet Saturn.I have taken MANY images of it before but never with as much detail.I do realize that it could be much better but how?.Any advice on imaging with the LPI would be greatly appreciated.Believe it or not,the image is a stack of 1000 images in a Jpeg file type.
