jewel of our solar system, revealing the
subtle banding around the orb that
results from the planet’s weather. It also
shows the exquisite gradation of
brightness and colour in the planet’s
rings. The ultra-faint inner ‘D-Ring’ and
outermost Encke gap are clearly visible.
The hexagonal storm at the North Pole –
a scientific curiosity – shows off three
of its angular kinks. Images with this
much clarity challenge our ideas of
what can be achieved with amateur
