I think this is surprisingly good considering my sky conditions. Maybe my best Saturn so far actually. Kind of amazing that Jupiter towards the east was mush, and this rather sharp.C8 with 2x Barlow (f20), DMK21 mono, best of 1800 frames stacked and processed in Registax. I got some decent surface detail, and there is certainly a hint of hexagonal shape to the northern polar vortex.
