First observation of Saturn for me in the current apparition.  Alas the planet is very low and as a result the seeing was rather poor and little detail was seen.  The main feature on the disk is the NEB although the NTB was also present but rather vague.  The B-Ring looked yellowish- an illusion no doubt caused by the low altitude of the planet.
