Super image there Dave! I wish I could afford a huge scope like that to get to see things like that!

:(

I'll give you €500 for your CG11...

Great image Dave.
The shadow of the planet on the rings has somewhat changed since last year, as expected.
It looks like the disk is not far from poking below the rings also ??
I'm hoping for a clear night this weekend, you never know.

Dave,
Actually, to me, it looks like Saturn is starting to tilt back towards a more edge on view of the riings. I remember last year you could see most of the rings the whole way round.
Comparitive image from last year:


Clear skies,
