I got the equatorial spot which has been visible for 2 months now.
There is also my first imaging attempt in the 889nm methan absorption band, rather underexposed.
with from left to right Iapetus, Titan, Mimas, Saturn, Tethys, Rhea, Hyperion (all except Iapetus are nicely aligned in Saturn's equatorial plan) and a very faint star.
