Oh yeah Trevor, very niiiiice! I was wondering when that was going to happen (the animation that is.) Is that the first animation of the hex by an amateur or ground-based scope?

Good point Mert, reckon the lack of pressure out where the Hubble is would create a major beer boiling problem. It may have been hot out here in Broken Hill but at least the beer is cold.

Thanks ZuoZhao, based on the fine Jupiter's you have been posting it would likely only be the lower alt of Saturn that would be causing you a problem. As a matter of interest what alt is Saturn rising to for you?

Thanks Michal, I appreciate your comment.

Right on the money Freddy, as the tilt increases imaging the hex will be as commonplace as capturing the CD.

Thanks Jason, not sure about the animation. Darryl's Polar projection map, is for sure the first I have seen showing the hex so nicely, well at all really. I have always been big on animations, you could check that out on my website or the animations section of the PVOL data base. With Saturn I think it helps to better reveal the type of storm structure that my researcher is interested in. In this instance the straight edges of the hex are also well defined and rotation of it is quite apparent.

Great work Trevor! Look forward to more of your imaging of the ringed planet. When you get a great seeing window the result will be most impressive with that scope.

Trevor, excellent image set! The small details really pop out on the animation. Your Saturn's are consistently of the highest quality. Thanks for posting them here

Regards,
Steve
