Saturn is now within hours from oposition (April3rd-4th). On the center image mid section body of the Serpent Storm still plowing the NPR region. The enke division could be seen at the outer edge of the rings and a brighter rings due to the seeliger effect caused by the ice crystal reflecting sunlight directly towards us. Also a six year past cycles from 2005 thru 2011 of opositions encircling the present cycle all taken by me also.

Equipment: LX200ACF 12 in. OTA, F30, CGE mount, PGR Flea3 Ccd, Astronomik LRGB filter set.
