Default ASTRO: Anyone images Saturn recently?

Hi All

As above anyone imaged Saturn of late?
Not having the 14" anymore I'd quite like to see what its like ...

Attached best effort mid Feb. with a Toucam on a 4" standard refractor

Quite surprised I got the rings!

Kev,

I think the time where the rings were "exactly" in line with earth was only
a few days. I have seen a few images where the rings were very faint, but
have not had the chance to image Saturn myself (bad weather since the start
of the year).
