Looking at the images tonight,one might think that I had perfect conditions. However,conditions were far from perfect.
Transparency was very poor because of thin clouds despite the excellent seeing conditions!
I could only use less than half my usual the frame rate with full gain! This is derotation to the rescue!
I just double my usual RGB sequence I take and derotated all these images! Individually,each image is very grainy but after derotation,I got these excellent images!
The Red Spot Z can be seen close to the CM. The new red spot still has a faint red color. The NNTZ LRS can be seen in the north. The GRS is rising on the left.
Note the light feature on the SEB seem to be approaching the GRS! I wonder what this feature is.... There are some activity on the NTBn.
Unfortunately,I couldn't do any CH4 or UV images because of poor transparency.
I'm leaving for Manila tomorrow to give two workshops on Planetary imaging. Hope to be back imaging on Saturday.
After processing my first set of images,I went out and saw Jupiter out of the clouds! I couldn't resist going on a second round with the GRS at the CM.
Transparency was a little better that earlier but it still wasn't great while seeing was excellent!
The GRS is at the CM! Note the white spot at the 2 o clock position of the GRS! The GRS is well resolved. Note the dark core and some hint of the vortex arms.
The wake of the GRS is complex with some outbreaks close by. The STrZ has a yellowish tinge. The STrZ around the GRS also looks a bit disturbed.
The NEB is dark and narrow. Some outbreaks can be seen. Note the bright spots congregating on the NTB! Is this outbreak similar to the powerful outbreak in 2007?

The NNTz LRS is conspicuous in RGB and very bright in the methane band.
The NTrZ reddish "Oval Z" is still discernable in RGB and remains bright in Methane.
