Condition was good last night. Seeing was a little unstable but I did not have to deal with clouds until close to the end of my imaging run.

It's a few hours before Saturn's opposition and the Seeliger effect can now be seen. The Seeliger effect brightens the ring of Saturn because the earth is now perfectly between the sun and Saturn.
The ice particles of the ring give us maximum reflection the new next 3 days.
The surface of Saturn has turned pale because of the Seeliger effect. Note the white band in the SEB. The polar hexagon is well resolved. Note the dark spot on the north pole in the IR image.
