    This was probably the best Saturn of the year and also the last one before dedicating myself to the professional appointments and travels that prevented me from taking photos as I have in recent weeks.
    There are many visible details and each wavelength evolves better than others, for example, with the IR 685 filter the polar hexagon and its central eye stand out perfectly. With the L filter, the tracks on the planet give a real show.
    For anyone to complain about both the Cassini division and Encke's division are easily visible and the only thing else is because of the Crepe ring that was practically missing. I could have highlighted it better but opted for a higher contrast rendering to evidence other details that were quoted above.

    A truly fascinating retrospective Avani! Your technique worked out beautifully on capturing the highest contrast of the Polar Hexagon - as wished. I'm going to go and find as much as I can on the IR 685 Filter!

    Thanks for this, Avani - please continue!

    Uma retrospectiva verdadeiramente fascinante Avani! Sua técnica funcionou muito bem ao capturar o maior contraste do Hexágono Polar - como desejado. Eu vou encontrar o máximo que puder no filtro IR 685!

    Obrigado por isso, Avani - por favor, continue!

    Dave
