Now is the time when Saturn is up not too late into the night. But I've waited for about 2 weeks for the sky to clear-not a cloud tonight. This is more than I can see with 10X binoculars and I don't have a telescope. Sony NEX-5N, Sigma 50-500@500, Induro AT413(just got it). The first is 100% and the second is "upsized" so it looks larger on the monitor. If it wasn't so late, I'd go out again with the Kiron 2X TC-maybe tomorrow night. Looking forward to using this technique to view the phases of Venus later this year.
