Imaging Saturn in 2012

Well I finally managed to catch Saturn last night - albeit just glimpses of it through the clouds.
With it being so low in the sky the colour dispersion was very marked, as can be seen in this still from my capture sequence:

But with a bit of RegiStax magic, I was able to extract some detail, including the Cassini division in the rings - see my Gallery:
