Saturn and 5 satellites - July 26th from provence
      #5994630 - 07/28/13 12:15 PM Attachment (43 downloads)

The five satellites were identified during our observation through ... the Jackie phone! For those of my generation, it's a bit like a call to information service...
The satellite with the lowest brightness is here Iapetus magnitude between 10.2 and 11.9, I should be able to find a sixth? Enceladus is very small, only 513km in diameter, but with an albedo of 1.0 its magnitude is 11.6, ... so wait and see! The sketch was made with pencils HB, 6B for the sky and color pencils for Saturn, I add some point of white gouache for the satellites.

Michel,

Very nice widefield view of Saturn and great catch on Iapetus. I have missed seeing Enceladus my past two Saturn observations because it was lost in the glare of the rings.
