On this session I was able to image a rare event of five moons in the same fov of this still image and created a gif animation also showing Titan, Tethys, Dione moving from right to left and Rhea and Enceladus left to right a 2 hr capture sequence. Also on the negative image the cassini division is shown wrapping around the disk at this maximum tilt angle of this year. Gif animation too large for posting. Goto my site to view.
