Saturn UTC

CM1: 115.60°

CM2: 328.90°

CM3: 231.60°

CLat: +30.00°

Description

Conditions for imaging were poor again. I had to wait for some clouds to disperse before moving on from Jupiter to Saturn. Like last imaging session, there were issues with intense heat currents coming off the C8 because it was much warmer than the ambient temperature.

Notes:

  • The North Polar Region is various shades of green.
  • The North North Temperate Belt is dark.
