After 2 hrs of sleep, I woke up again for a date with the Lord of the Rings.
The mount worked fine now. But there was some thrill during this run.
A huge thunder cloud was heading our way in the east.
Fortunately, winds were only 3kph so I had enough time to get some color data before water starts falling from the sky.
Seeing was very good tonight. Note the two NEB white spots!
These are the same white spots I imaged on April 25! The Polar Hexagon is distinct.
So is the Blue-Green polar spot which the Cassini Spacecraft imaged on April 26.
The Cassini Spacecraft is now doing it's last dance.
This is the de-orbit routine which will crash Cassini into Saturn this September.
