Saturn is now very difficult from my location as it is only visible in twilight before the view is obstructed by a neighbour's house some 5 degrees before Saturn reaches due South.  It is nice when my brief window coincides with reasonable planetary seeing conditions, as it did for three out of four successive evenings between 23rd and 26th August.
