Saturated Occultation - now an APOD!!

EDIT: This image was selected as today's APOD. Super excited - my first one!

The moon and Saturn just prior to last night's occultation of Saturn from Sydney.
I boosted the saturation to bring out the colours of the lunar surface.

This is a single frame at prime focus through the Skywatcher Mak-Newt (1000mm fl) with a Pentax K-5 DSLR. I attempted to equalise the brightness of the moon and Saturn as best I could.
