An observation of Saturn I made with Jon Culshaw using his 6 inch SCT Meade telescope in Hampstead.  The rings were notably brighter due to the opposition effect, the C-Ring was much harder to see.  The NEB was the most prominent belt on the disk, with some polar shading present.  Greenish tint to the NTropZ still visible.
