Thanks Martin. Visually I could make out Titan easily, not so much the dimmer trio (it doesn’t help being so close to the summer solstice of course!). The camera makes light work of them. I’ll keep trying with Mimas: it’s a long wait till the rings are edge on! I’m pretty sure I’ve got a positive on Enceladus – there’s a definite concentration of signal (see my posted observation, and please give an honest opinion) where it is predicted to be by my planetarium application. I’ll have to be patient for a favourable elongation for Mimas – if there is such a thing!
