On the same evening of capturing a nice Jupiter in civil twilight, shortly after I was able to capture a nice Saturn before it too disappeared behind the same local obstruction.  This is a slightly longer derotation of 30minutes of equal amounts of IR and colour luminance data.    Unlike my last two postings of Saturn this month I used a low IR pass filter at 642nm instead of a mid range one at 742nm, although the rings are not quite as bright in this image it has enabled me to capure a little more detail.
