The question was, "What is the angle between the plane of Saturn's rings and its equatorial plane?".

The attached document shows that the main rings are apparently in Saturn's equatorial plane, so the angle is 0 degrees.

However, the recently-discovered and distant Phoebe ring rotates in a retrograde direction in the plane of Saturn's ecliptic, which is at angle of 26.7 degrees to the ring and equatorial plane. Details in Saturn.pdf attached.
