I was setting up to capture a symphony of moons on Jupiter, and the seeing was good-ish. So while I was waiting, I went after a capture of Saturn:

Sadly, the seeing tanked a few minutes later…

Very nice image, good detail and the colors are very nice.  Thank you for this beautiful image of Saturn, it is nice to be reminded of the beauty close to home in our solar system. waytogo.gif
