Saturn 2013 March 31

The seeing looked steady visually on this occasion, but on-screen it was rippling very fast at a small scale (not surprising for 27º altitude). Three sequences of RGB were captured, and all combined for a 14 minute run, interspersed with IR captures. This is the first image I have produced using the PierroAstro dispersion corrector in the imaging train.

There’s no evidence of any spots, though Encke’s division is faintly apparent.
