Lovely Saturn. The seeing was exceptional this night and allowed me to
capture this image.
This is by far the best resolution and color I've been able to capture for
this subject. The planetary detail and the varying shading of the
rings is usually very difficult and the Cassini Division (the gap between
the rings) is nicely defined.
