Saturn, 6th September: excellent seeing, spokes and Tethys transit

Hi all, here's a few images from my 6th September Saturn run in mostly really good seeing. Among the highlights are three spokes on the B Ring (see animated GIF and also at higher resolution here), a transit of Tethys later on, and disturbances in the South Equatorial Belt. The remnant of Saturn's Great White Storm of 2011 is a small dark spot in the first IR image (spot AV), thanks to Trevor Barry for highlighting that recently.

I even tried my first UV image of Saturn, which was tough as it's faint at those wavelengths, and unsurprisingly pretty grainy.

Part of a series of good seeing nights I've had lately, with a lot of Saturn processing still to go!
Clear skies,
Andy

Nice work all round here Andy an excellent set of data. This apparition it has been difficult to resolve small scale detail with RGB data. You really need exceptional G and particularly B data to make it happen.
