Saturn Image 2015/02/10(UT)


Milika-Nicholas (355mm SCT)
We imaged Saturn on the 10th February under poor seeing - however, the last
avi in iR742nm after the Sun had risen surprised us with excellent detail
across the Saturnian disk!
Of special interest is the fact that the Northern edge of the ring system
(at bottom of image) is now seen to be completely encircling Saturn's
globe.....& the shadow of
 the disk can now be seen on the rings in this section - & within the edge
of the encompassing rings! :)
