    Default Saturn dec 19th poor seeing, really poor!



    Woke up just after 5 and planned on during some Mars runs then Saturn. The seeing was so poor I could not focus on Mars and see the Ice cap. I did take a few lunar images to salvage the session but had to try Saturn too.

    By the end the sun was interfering (7am)



    This would would have been decent but I think it's slightly out of focus. (size increased)



    I'll have to wait until at least Christmas morning to try again as Saturn is too low before I leave for work just after 6.
