Saturn, or Chronos, the god of Time, the slowest moving of the traditional 7 planets.  As seen from Earth there are 28 retrograde motions of this planet through the circle of the zodiac every 29 years.  Saturn’s metal is lead.  Lead is heavy so Saturn can morph into Satan.

It’s no HST shot, but our telescope was a hell of a lot cheaper. through that new vixen eyepiece, it’s pretty stunnah anyway. not bad for an 80mm refractor in london.
