looking at Saturn again (Blue Mountains)

Using the C14 again, trying to coaxing some faint moons, in a bright sky. I can see Dione just off the rings toward Titan but I cannot see Mimas on the other side.

Curiously, Stellarium says Dione is mag 10.96 which seems more appropriate. TheSky 6 says it's 10.2. It seems to me fainter than Iapetus. Stellarium says Iapetus is 11.77; TheSky shows 11.2.

Looks like Tethys and Enceladus are coming out from behind. I'll have to try again later... Just need to remember it sets around 2.
