Good seeing. The south pole shows interesting coloration.
Iapetus Transit: July 17
We managed to capture this rare event under very poor seeing conditions and a relatively small aperture (9,25") for the task. It is very difficult to discern the moon in still frames (only one or two show it clearly enough as it only occupies about 2x2 pixels!) however, we put together timelapse animations to make the effect more noticeable.
The first timelapse is in RGB with the ASI224MC and covers the window 23:03-23:18 UT (17/7/2022). At this time Iapetus is transiting the rings, just above the B ring and into the Cassini division. We uploaded this animation twice with the second featuring a reference box to draw your attention to where the moon is. The 11 frame animation rewinds and repeats.
