    thank you. one of the good things living near equator is planets eventually rising to the top.

    Saturn is particularly striking!

    I would definitely say that the planets were the saving grace for the night.

    Thanks for sharing,

    that's an excellent first try!
    It looks to me like not only Cassini, but also maybe Encke, and structures in the B ring in Saturn.

    Thank you,

    Wow, for a first try, that's incredibly good... Not that I have ever tried myself. But, you know, just saying.
