Saturn was even lower in the sky from the UK during 2014 but the use of atmospheric dispersion correction prisms enabled good images to be obtained. Seeing during May and June was actually rather good.
I did not have a large scope on the mount during 2015 just my 7 inch solarscope. In 2016 I mounted a C14 with the AP178 and carried on imaging Saturn in spite of it being very low in the sky from 51.35North. Trying to capture its beauty is addictive.
