With clouds covering my part of the world, I revisited some previous videos of Saturn from a week and a bit ago and played around with the settings to see what was there. I brightened the rings a little and added a little more contrast to the disc. Oh, and just for fun I played with the levels a bit more and found 4 moons lurking just above the noise. 

 

So with the moons artificially brightened and enlarged, this is the final result. The moons identified are (from top to bottom) Mimas, Enceladus, Tethys and Dione.
