Not sure when the rings are 'wild' open, but they're close to wide open right now.

I got an amazing view of them yesterday morning about 5am CST Saturn is almost due south. Cassini division looked so big, black, and sharp like it was drawn on with a sharpie. It's a little bit east of the Virgo constellation.

That is what I am looking for. I added your thirty oppositions of Saturn in my favorites in my computer. Thank you very much!
