Saturn UTC

CM1: 234.20°

CM2: 323.10°

CM3: 288.40°

CLat: +29.30°

Description

An excellent night for planetary imaging, with the usual caveat of being too breezy for using the CGEM DX/C14.

Notes:

  • There's a subtle white smudge in the western side of the northern hexagon.
  • The NEBn is well defined on its northern edge by the thin NTZ.
  • The NEB is split by a subtle band, which is better defined in near-infrared.
  • The EZ is also split by a thin gray band.
