After capturing Mars, we jumped to Saturn to continue imaging session on a 1 m telescope in Chile.

Seeing was good (6-7/10). Polar hexagon is visible, accompanied with small storms.

Very nice image.  You did an excellent job processing, showing a good amount of resolution but at the same time minimizing any artifacts and presenting a very natural looking Saturn.  Well done.

Many thanks for your likes and comments!

Post-processing was done by our team member, Yuri. Totally agree, he produced nice-looking image.
