After several tests in May, this is my first image of Saturn just presentable.

Conditions are still difficult in the northern hemisphere with a height of 27° and a passage to the meridian shortly before daybreak.

I hesitated to publish this view but some details on saturn's disk are noticeable then...

Given awkward turbulence and high-altitude clouds, I was only able to process one video per IR. G.B channel with 2000 images each, which gives a little colored image.
