I have a very brief window when the still low Saturn in UK skies is high enough to image, as by the time it reaches due South it is behind a neighbour's house.  The night of 13th-14th September was unusually steady compared to recent times and I was able to give my new colour planetary camera a workout on Saturn for a change.   This is a derotated image covering 24minutes of Saturn mixing some IR pass data at 742nm (this colour camera is more sensitive in IR than my current mono cameras) and the rest is colour data.
