Saturn UTC

CM1: 250.80°

CM2: 339.00°

CM3: 304.30°

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 EZ is split by a thin band, which is barely visible in visible light and near-infrared.
  • Enceledus is just below the 9 o'clock position relative to Saturn, Dione is at 12 o'clock, and Tethys is between the two aforementioned moons, slightly closer to Dione.
