David,

Nice captures of the bands on Saturn and a tease with the Cassini division.

Thanks for the comments - the Cassini division could only be seen as a tiny spec at the best moments of viewing. It was right at the limit of the scope/seeing.

David,

Very nice, sharp Saturn sketch. :bow: :cool: The ring shadow on the planet is very easy to see again.

Frank :)
