Description
This is my first image of Saturn this year. The planet is just a little over a month of the opposition and its brightness is still low, with a magnitude 0.3. In this session, the observation conditions are unfavorable and as a result the quality of the image obtained is poor. However, it can be seen very faintly some atmospheric features, apart from the bands and the polar hexagon, which are readily identified. During an observation period of one hour I could capture a sequence of five images.
