Saturn April 13/14, 2011: Finally!
I had been watching the forecasts all day. It looked like I would get a break in the clouds and possibly some *fair* seeing conditions. Nothing to get all excited about in good weather patterns but with the conditions I've been experiencing this year, this looked like a worthwhile night. Once I pointed the C9,25 at the first alignment star I was stunned at the stillness of the atmosphere and a few minutes later I was collimating with metaguide and getting a uniform crisp airy disk. Haven't seen that since late summer! Here's a preview at f/22 with Rhea in the FOV (had to enhance the moon a little bit).
