Imaged Saturn March 8th in good seeing. The North polar hexagon is well seen,the collar surrounding the hexagon is distinctly greenish,as it also was back in 2013. The 742nm IR data shows the vortex at the pole in the centre of the hexagon as a quite distinct dark spot. Have also attached a set of 742nm IR,R and RGB polar projections.

Here are our Saturn images for 8th March 2015. Only "fair" seeing - but
still some details can be seen on the disk with careful study...
