Saturn, June 6, 2019, 01:01.

After a short break, I decided to shoot Saturn – it now appears much earlier. With the onset of summer, it is more difficult to catch a calm atmosphere, as the surface of the earth heats up during the day. Despite the small height above the horizon, the Cassini divide and the cloud belt on the disk (SEB) are easily visible.

On May 23, 2019, the Moon and Saturn came close enough in the sky – the angular distance was slightly more than one degree. Saturn was much dimmer than the Moon, so I had to take several pictures with different shutter speeds and impose them on each other.

Saturn, May 21, 2019

First Saturn this year. After shooting Jupiter and the Moon, I decided to wait for Saturn. The atmosphere was unstable, but by the very end of the shooting the image had improved. I also managed to photograph Saturn in the line of methane – the planet looks very interesting with this filter.
