Big Ears

Saturn is tilted so that the rings appear edge on. In other words, there isn’t much to see. This photo was taken with the moon in the vicinity. So forget about seeing Titan … just big ears. I processed the images in Maxim to bring out the contrast difference of the rings versus the planet. No bad for crappy conditions. Not great either.
Also, here’s what Stellarium shows for the same period. Note my image is backwards due to the telescope lens.
