The clouds cleared out for a little while and I was able to capture several 6 minute RGB sets on Saturn. I used AstraImage to combine the individual RGB sets and I then derotated the combined RGBs with WinJupos.

The end result is good. Still a little on the hazy looking side, but this is most likely due to a combination of atmospheric dispersion and thin high clouds. Seeing varied from 3-4/5 and transparency was 6-7/10.

I did some reprocessing on the image because I thought I might be able to get some more out of it. So here it is less hazy and a bit enlarged.

Too true...I'm always much more judgmental of my own work than of others work. :)
