For the second successive night conditions were good for imaging Saturn although I have a very short window when it is high enough before it is obstructed from my observatory view.  This is a 23minute session derotated to 19:39 UT using an equal mixture of IR (742nm pass filter) and colour luminance with my colour planetary camera, the impressive ZWO ASI462MC.   If anything this is a sharper and clearer image than my previous posting with a neater view of the hexagon at the top.
