Saturn imaged for the first time this season in very good conditions for the
altitude (15°) just a few hours before opposition and showing the Seeliger
effect.  Details on the images.

North polar storm close to the central meridian. Unlikely I'll get better
this season!

With a bit of delay in processing, my best Saturn this year despite being at around 20° elevation. 
Rings are bright thanks to the opposition effect (it's one day before opposition), 
and the polar storm is not resolved but visible both in red/infrared wavelength, and in visible.
