There was a lot of cloud around but Saturn was showing somewhat east of south. I took my 127mm Maksutov out and has a clear view with my 32mm Plossl eyepiece delivering a magnification of 64x. I could clearly see the rings and the space between the planet and rings but no other detail. I tried some afocal shots with my DSLR on automatic settings at various focal lengths.

I then tried prime focus at 1.54 metres focal length, ISO 100 and various exposures from 1/20 second to 1/5 second. 1/20 second was best.
