Hi Mario, very awesome shot, looks like polar cap to me. Very cool!!

Thanks kJ. To capture general features on planets (eg, major belts on Jupiter, Saturn's rings and now this, is pretty cool, I agree

I forgot to mention to turn off IS. Leaving it on under such magnification can cause the subject to dance once or twice before settling.


(Saturn enlarged ~2x)

Actually, I didnt realise until now, the ring at 2 o'clock is pointing towards us and the ring at 8 o'clock is behind Saturn - you can see its shadow cast on the rings!
