Saturn Image 2018/02/05(UT)
My first Saturn images for this apparition, heralding the start of my 2018 Jupiter,
Saturn and Mars TrilogyE which is going to keep me busy for most of this year.
None ideal conditions, but I note that the NEB does not appear to have its distinct salmon colour.
It will be interesting to see if this is confirmed by other observers,
or whether it is just poor quality data.
In the IR, the hexagon is not well seen, although the polar vortex is detected.
