Description

I made a second although shorter RGB run on Saturn on the 19th of April. However the seeing continued to be exceptionally good. This image showing north up and south up views shows the benefit of the good seeing, especially in the clarity of the hexagonal polar vortex. There seems to be some activity in the North North Temperate Zone, just south of the North Polar Region, which makes this region look wider on one side of the Central Meridian.
