Yesterday I observed with  my Takahashi FC76DS  Saturn and Jupiter. The Seeing was good and I had a great view on  both planets. Both Planets show a lot of details .I tried different eyepieces .The best view was with 5mm Nagler .Magnification up to 114x were possible . This is the sketch I made. This is the fiirst Saturn sketch after a longer time.

That's very nice! Good detail for such a low altitude. I've looked at Saturn a few times this year and only occasionally have I been able to glimpse the Cassini division in my 80mm and 85mm scopes. On most occasions the seeing has been too poor to show anything else than a blurry mess. 

 

 

Clear skies!

Hi Tom and astronz59,

 

Thank you for your friendly comments. It is great to see Saturn and Jupiter that often like this times. I hope the clear skies hold on some more time.

And I hope the sandstorm on Mars will end soon.

 

Clear skies Markus

That's about how it looked with my C90 last night with the Cassini division coming from the and we but fading out about the same point.
