About this image


Was imaging Saturn at opposition (or near it anyway) and then decided to swing over to Jupiter given the seeing was a little above average. Caught the GRS setting, two rather intense NEBs barges, and A1, A2 rising. Would rate the seeing at 6/10, while transparency varied from 5/6 to 3/6 due to passing high, thin cirrus clouds.
