Saturn with Six Moons
When I got up this morning at 2:00am. I was met, to my disappointment, with a
thin-overcast sky. The weather reports still promised clear and stable skies so I setup
the telescope and had a cup of coffee.  Forty-five minutes later the clouds had cleared
from the sky.  The air above me was very stable and provided one of the best
planetary nights that I have had this year.  Mars was my primary goal but it was still low
so I had an hour to kill as Mars rose in the sky.  Saturn filled my time and was
magnificent.  It held steady at over 300-power and its features and moons were as
stunning as ever.  I had not planned on drawing Saturn, but how could I pass it up?
