That is the best 'halway' planetary seeing I have even seen!  I wish I  could get that in mine.   A great start Ferret...the legend continues...

I have nothing of major importance lined up for tomorrow. other  than cleaning up a boat that i had to remove a vinyl wrap from. last night it went from clear to cloudy as the easy bake oven light started to set and it was cloudy all day with a ew thunder claps, a nice break from the usual 100 and hundred degrees with nonstop sun er em easy bake oven light. so at the moment i am hoppng it will stay cloudy so I wont be able to image tonight I really did not want to capture Saturn near opposition and I really did not want to try a couple of wide shots o saturn to even see if it were at all possible to capture the elusive f ring  lol. I JUST DID NOT EVEN WANT TO GO OUT TONOIGHT SO LEETS ALL HOPE IT STAYS CLOUDY OUT ALL NIGHT LONG.
