Saturn and five moons
      #3758855 - 04/21/10 01:05 PM

Hallo,

on Sunday I had a good sky here at my place and I observed Saturn and saw five moons,that was great.I think for me it was the first time to see five moons of Saturn .Thetys, Rhea and Dione were difficult to see all three at the same time,it take some time for me .Iapetus was easy.

Fine sketch. It's strange, you see Saturn as brown. To me it looks very yellow.

Markus,

An excellent observation of Saturn and some of it's satellites. It must have been a fine view through your refractor. Thank you for sharing it with us all.

I consider myself lucky when I come up with these 5 moon and Saturn. Well done - nice sketch.
