DEChengst, a rough guess at the time it will take light to travel between the earth and saturn is about 80 minutes, so you'll have wave to Cassini about 80 minutes before the picture is taken (about 13:07 Pacfic daylight time), and you'll need to wave for 15 minutes while the series of pictures are taken ;-)
