The great Saturn storm of 2010/11 was captured using a C14 Edge HD and a Point Grey Flea3 camera. Processed using AviStack v2 and MaximDL. The storm is expanding rapidly covering more than 100 degrees in longitude. The original feature developed a relatively quiet interior and the spots preceding it continued to brighten near the origin of the disturbance in earlier December. North is up in this view.
