Last night was Arizona's large Messier Marathon event halfway between Phoenix and Tucson. I brought my 18" to do visual work only, but the seeing turned out to be quite good. Here's an image from the 18" with a 2x Barlow, scaled up by 150%.

Tom, excellent image! Banding details are amazing. Good to see a Saturn from such a big scope. How'd you make out on the marathon? Thanks for posting
