Stayed up until daybreak to grab this. Not the best of quality but not surprising with how low she is. Taken through the murk and at daybreak. F15 scope. ZWO 120 MC 5000 frame

Never fails to dazzle 👍

I'm guessing morning twilight is the spoiler here....?

 

I've not seen them yet this year, and had a quick look just before 04:00hrs, but saw nothing.

Possibly from my location they were behind tree's....

Awesome, said it before but Saturn is the one object that temps me back to visual observing. I well remember the first time I saw it through a telescope as a kid - it's got a lot to answer for!

Mars is there as well Rob.

About the same distance behind Saturn as Saturn is behind Jupiter.

Time is around 4 am and yes it is getting towards daylight and sunrise.
