on 3-9 i captured some saturn avis. in one i thought i could see a storm but didnt think it possible with my setup so i just wrote it off as an artifact. i went out last night and although my session was cut very short by dew i see another spot at the same latitude. im thinking now i did catch a storm as it seems odd to have an artifact at the same spot seperated by a week. im not sure though.

can anyone confirm?

heres the shot from 3-9

I think it's not an artifact and it is not under the limits of your setup.
There was a spot in the STZ these days:

sol, originally I didn't even notice this, until hanto pointed out the same white spot on my image taken the same night. I tried to over sharpen the 2,3 wavelets to highlight the white spot better and may have picked up some artifacts. Nice work!

Regards,
Steve
