Saturn viewing

Well, last night I brought out the Skywatcher 130 and had a look for Saturn. It was still light, so I hunted for the planet that was located to the South West higher than the Moon. When I found Saturn it was very clear and with the 10mm eyepiece you could easily see a dark band at the top part of the planet. Saturn along with some of it's moons was a joy to see!

Now I need to get out my Philips Toucam Pro II and see if I can still image Saturn like I was able to a couple of years ago.

The image above was taken with my Skywatcher 130 and Philips Toucam Pro II back in 2007.
