The seeing was poor and clouds made it not esy to catch a full
AVI. Nevertheless,this is my first of this apparition with the Cassini
division Unfortunately,te bright white spot was at the other side. Maybe
Seeing was good this morning. I had an early start with Saturn because of the alert by Georg Fisher of the Cassini RPWS team that the Electrostatic Disturbance is back. Images by other amateurs show that the disturbance is now in the northern hemisphere instead of the southern hemisphere in the past years. Saturn was 48 deg above the horizon when I took this image. This is the first time I imaged Saturn with my Flea3 camera. The faster frame rate and extrra sensitivity really helped in making this image look good.

In my image this morning,the Northern Electrostatic Disturbance (NED) is very bright! I was even able to see it distinctly visually! The position of the storm has shifted from it's original III: 250 to around III: 261!!! Note the "tail" like feature of this storm.
The Cassini Division is very distinct.
