Saturn Meets The Moon

An occultation of Saturn by the Moon, which occurred on 4th August 2014.
This image was taken through my Meade LX-90 telescope and 2x Barlow, a few minutes after Saturn reappeared from behind the Moon.
Now you've seen the picture, here is a short (two and a half minutes) video of Saturn that I took as it actually disappeared behind the Moon, just over an hour before this image of the reappearance.
I posted a lower powered image of a previous occultation a few weeks ago.
