Well that was a most interesting occultation, when's the next one. So many excellent images from earlier tonight, well done to everyone that posted them.
After all the planning and anticipation I managed to muck things up. For reasons unknown I stuffed up polar alignment and by the time I managed to get the scope aimed in the right direction, ingress had already started but did manage to get some video.
For reappearance I got the position on the limb wrong and was looking too far north and by the time I realised that I should be seeing Saturn and went hunting along the limb for it, it had already fully reappeared. then getting the adequate exposure of the planet with the bright limb was trickier than anticipated.
But at least I saw most of it on screen and managed some video for processing.
