Hi all
Looks like the clearskies indicators many of us use in our sigs do a pretty good job of predicting "seeing" as well as cloud cover. Had a 3 to4 out of 5 prediction tonight so I got some saturn images when it was at about °40 alt

I think its about as good as I can do with my XT8

Nice detail even though transparency isn't great, even caught the Cassini. Just wait for a 5/5 sky!

Funniest thing I've read in a while. I'd have a better change at the lottery. :)

Very nice Saturn Fox.
