Saturn tonight (6/12/05)

Recommended Posts

Got my 150mm f12 Mak out for the first time in a while, I just mainly wanted to look at Saturn although M42 is always worth a look.

Banding was very apparent up to x300, I usually have trouble making out detail on Saturn but tonight was pretty pronounced. The Cassini division was obvious but could n't see Enkle (again!! :clouds2:)

Considering I was only out for a quick look (Liverpool were on the tele!!) I was very impressed with Saturn tonight, I hope it's the Mak rather than my wishfull thinking after a barren couple of weeks observing.
