Saturn - 19th April 2009
      #3059601 - 04/22/09 01:20 PM Attachment (47 downloads)

This drawing was done between 2130 and 2145 BST with a Celestron C9.25 SCT at x340. Seeing was better than normal. For brief moments I got a hint of a division in the South Equatorial belt but didn't draw it as it was too fleeting. Cassini division was easily seen as the rings are tilting open a little more now.

An excellent observation of Saturn showing some detail. The ringed planet is always exciting to observe. Thank you for sharing it with us all.
