Saturn near opposition

Getting a good picture of Saturn

May of this year is a good time to photograph Saturn. The opposition happens on 3AM, May 11, with the closest approach to Earth happening very close to that. This means that Saturn looks the biggest and brightest compared to other times of the year. The weather forecast says that the night of the opposition may be cloudy or rainy, so I took photos last night instead.
