Another perfect evening. There were some thin clouds during the start of my session, but it cleared after a few minutes.

Note the white band just north of the SEB. It is very prominent in the last image. Again, there are a lot of band details.

Just a reminder that there will be a Titan shadow transit on the 28. This will be visible from the west coast of the Americas to east Austral-Asia.

Looks like some of the variable seeing may have marred some from the night prior.

Still a great look, thanks so much for posting here Chris!
