Saturn's Encaldus Transit in poor seeing 2008-04-25

It has been a poor winter and early spring for Astronomy, so I've been trying to take what I can get. Fighting poor (1/5) transparency and hazy clouds, I think I managed to eek out a portion of the Enceladus transit.

First is a simulation from Cartes du Ceil. (Click on for 2frame animation of what I think I've captured).

Next a still view of both times from the animation.

Thirdly, a composite of moons including Mimas (look closely near upper left of rings.

With labels of what I think i see (please post a response to let me know what you see)

My Flash Animation.

Happy hunting!
