Started my Saturn season this morning capturing 742nm IR data at alts from 20 to 26 degrees. Have attached the final IR image, the data improved as Saturn rose, from resembling a waving flag through to being relatively stable. Have also attached an animation of all data. Of course the seeing was a problem at such a low alt but Saturn will rise quite rapidly to peak at 77 degrees by opposition for my observatory.
