Trevor Barry(406mm Newtonian)
Imaged Saturn May 23rd at opposition,the jet stream supplied very fast seeing although it did settle at times. High alt cirrus wafting through also effected the signal,that said I was very grateful to be able to get data on the night of opposition.
I have good coverage of Saturn rotation over this 90 minute session. The Seeliger effect is quite noticeable and the North polar hexagon is well seen,particularly in RGB.

Attached is an image of Saturn taken with a TEC 200 refractor just over two  hours after
opposition.  The seeing was above average for my latitude of 32.3  degrees.
