Thank you for supporting this wiki project
Using Ultima x2 Barlow and selecting the best 800 of 1800 frames captured with a webcam, John got this Saturn. Rings are nearly edge-on, due to the date the picture was taken. In 2009 Saturn rings plane and Earth position matched doing them more difficult to observe. It is remarkable the high contrast between the rings and the planet surface, clearly much brighter.

The Heynes Manual arrived today and, well, it's more a greenal - and less, um, geeky - treatment of Apollo 11 than the "Owners' Workshop Manual" subtitle suggests.The best book I've read to date on Apollo 11 has been First on the Moon by Armstrong, Aldrin & Collins. A review of that, and the Heynes Manual, will be going up on my blog next month, as part of my 40th celebrations of the Moon Landing.
