I wish I had some magic dust, I would have used it on the egress. I just tweaked the capture frame rate trying to see Saturn while keeping some details on the limb. If I had to do it again I would under expose Saturn. It's easier to lighten up than deal with burnt data.

And I thought mine was wobbly. How did you get so much details.

It was interesting to see what appears to be a slightly more slanted angle of ingress from your location - I wonder if this is the result of our different imaging locations, sort of a parallax effect.


Yeah I wondered about that too. I could correlate Alex's limb details in his wideshot but not yours. Angle was also different. There is 7 degrees difference in latitude.
