Description

This was our last photo of Saturn for the night, after which we moved on to photographing Mars. Seeing deteriorated quite a bit.

Notes:

  • The north polar hexagon is visible. It looks as if there is a ring inside it.
  • The outbreak at high northern latitudes is at the central meridian.
