Please find attached a Saturn drawing made last night in rather poor conditions. As well as taken intensity estimates, the planet was examined in W#25A (red), W#80A (light blue), W#47 (violet), W#21 (orange) and W#58. Things of note:
SPR now visible, so too is the ShRG which now appear above the ansae in the south
EB seems to have been present
NEB broad. At times I was of the impression of a number of darker sections within the NEB(s).
NEB seems to give way to a darker NTropZ?
NTB hard to see tonight.
NPR a vague dark region in the far north.
A-Ring of a brownish hue.
Cassini Division seen, though only at ansae edges
B1-Ring bright, white in colour.
B2-Ring present near to the C-Ring
At times it seemed there were a number of fine details on the disk but it was impossible to record them in time.

@Aquarellia I use 6mm WA planetary eyepiece which gives me x167

Impressive sketch and even more impressive observing skills!
