This was a nice Saturn captured on the evening of 6th August.  It is still too low this year in our skies for great detail to be captured through the atmosphere but this was one of the better images for me this year.  It is a combination of data from a 642nm IR pass filter, which includes most of the red data as well, with green and blue data.
