Horizontal image investment because used diagonal mirror.

The predominant color on the planet is a very pale yellow (at other times showed an intense golden) contrasting with some greyish belts with ill-defined irregularities. It clearly shows the shadow of the planet on the rings.

The Cassini Division shows a high contrast and a black is intense and well defined.

I could clearly see the satellites Titan, Rhea, Dione. Tethys only very weakly.

Enceladus, I’d be on the limit of this equip, but It was not possible to distinguish. Mimas is beyond the scope of this opening.
