Another pretty good summer night with Saturn, though a little too breezy for the C14. The nearly full Moon was very close, causing the sky to look very bright through the eyepiece, though not enough to affect imaging.

Notes:The Equatorial Zone contains a thin, band on the equator, more visible than in visible light.Tethys is faintly visible near the one o'clock position relative to Saturn.
