Hi all,
Attached is an observation of Saturn I made yesterday evening.  Seeing was around AIV with some steady moments.  Interestingly the EZ seemed to have a somewhat 'mottled' appearance due to some slightly brighter patches which seemed to be present and eating into the EB.  NEB broad with a number of darker sections, a number of other belts seen to the north.
Best wishes,
-Paul

Thanks Jeremy- it's nice to get a good run on the planets, even if they are all very low down!!
