Unusually calm air allowed for some nice viewing of the moon and Saturn. I had some neighbors, friends, and family fight off the mosquitoes and enjoy waxing gibbous moon and Saturn with several moons. Cassini Division was plain as day, noticeable banding on planet. I used my main outreach rig: Custom XT10 on EQ platform, carrying XT4.5 piggyback. I used a Meade digital EP and 2x barlow, video sent to portable TV.

Here's a close-up. The camera could not capture how clear the view was. The seeing was VERY good.
