Saturn Still Ringless

I got out the big scope today, and Saturn was still a lovely ringless ball (even though I had to go to some difficulty to get the scope in a place where I could see Saturn). However, the batteries to the drive were dead, so like before, where I couldn't get any pictures with the 4", I couldn't get any pictures with the 8".

Here's two articles on the disappearance of Saturn's rings at Saturnian equinox by the Bad Astronomer and the Universe Today.
