The good seeing for Mars on this morning prompted me to go for Saturn, though still at quite a low altitude. Seeing was not as good as it had been earlier.
However, these images reveal some details, particularly in the green channel, which is given in slightly and very sharpened versions here. There seem to be several features in the N hemisphere G image, but, most convincingly, a small bright oval in the mid-NTB, arrowed, which is also visible in the RGB. There is possibly an irregularity in the N edge of the NTB following this, and some dark features in the N, but I am less convinced of these.
