Saturn UTC

CM1: 243.70°

CM2: 332.30°

CM3: 297.50°

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:

  • The north pole is circled by a bright donut in the hexagon.
  • The NEB is clearly split in near-infrared, which is barely visible in visible light.
  • The EZ is also split by a subtle and thin band.
