Takahashi 4" F8 refractor, x204, seeing III, 2100UT.

My first ever drawing - and I must say I really enjoyed it.

North is at the bottom !!!

The northern hemisphere appeared darker than the southern.

The main southern belt was stonger than the northern belt.

A very nice observation of Saturn. You have captured the major belts and zones well. Thank you for sharing them with us all.
