Seeing conditions steadied just before dawn as both Jupiter and Saturn rose high enough to image.  Saturn was the steadiest I've had it so far this year and I was able to get a steady luminance as well as RGB and some IR data.   This image is one LRGB sequence recombined with 50% of my best IR sequence.
