Saturn on July 25. North is up. This exquisite stacked-video image shows detail in the broad A ring and the thin Encke Gap just inside the outer edge of the outer B ring. It was taken July 25, 2021, by Agapios Elia of Nicosia, Cyprus, with a 9.25-inch Schmid-Cassegrain scope in apparently excellent seeing.
