Taken @ 00:25am MST on 31-May-2016 (0725UT on 31-May-2016).
Although Saturn won't be at opposition until June 3rd, its distance at this point won't matter much.

Best 30 of 300 frames taken with the Celestron NexImage5 planetary imaging camera, Celestron 1100 EdgeHD telescope, no barlow, fl = 1960mm. Image scale 0.23 arc-secs/pixel. Video processed in ImagesPlus6.5 with RGB color channels split, aligned and re-combined.

North is up and east is to the left.
