Here is the first Saturn of the apparition. Despite being four months until opposition the result was very good.
Seeing was good (though not excellent) but large aperture on Saturn really seems to work wonders.
The hexagon is nicely seen. Also note the Encke division is seen around the whole of ring A.

There is an rgb image...also an animation of 2 r-channel images.
Some disk activity appears to be present, even at this early stage of the apparition.
