Greetings all!

Here's a recent observation I made of Saturn with the university of Leicester's 20" DK telescope. As you can see there are plenty of details!

Recently I have (along with David Gray) become convinced that Titan has got redder. On the 18th I made a drawing of Titan and also compared it with the G-class star 34 Bootis. It was evident that Titan was more redder than 34 Bootis!

Best wishes,
-Paul.

Is there a reason for the "redder" Titan?

Paul,

You really captured some nice detail with that scope. What moon is that preceding the southern limb?

Paul,

Wonderful sketching.
Had a look at Saturn last night myself - no sketching for me with very much turbulence in the atmosphere from my location.
