Seeing was variable this evening but there were lots of moments of excellent seeing.
The GRS takes center stage this evening. There are a lot of activities around the GRS.
The halo of the GRS has a yellowish coloration.
Note the spot at the 11 o clock position of the GRS. THe dark core of the GRS is visible.
The wake of the GRS is very complex. Note also the material pushed out of the GRS to the STrZ on the preceding side.
There are a lot of rift activity on the NEB.
Note the Red Spot Z setting on the first image.
Note the two NTB disturbances with a dark cloud in the center.

Imaged Jupiter early last evening in arguably the best seeing I have had for Jupiter this apparition.
It gives me great satisfaction to rate the seeing as good without including the qualification," for the 35 degree alt".
I note a line of 3 conspicuous white ovals in the STrB with a 4th but fainter white oval very close to the P limb.
The GRS is just coming over the F limb and I note turbulence preceding the GRS within the STrZ.
There is also a line of 3 tiny dark spots within said turbulence between the GRS & CM with another tiny dark spot midway between
that formation and the GRS but situated on the Southern edge of the STrZ
Within the SEB between the GRS & CM there is a strange almost faded feature,
and there remains a line of knotted turbulence along the Northern edge of the SEB,particularly between the F limb and CM.
The NEB has several longitudinal structures of turbulence in it and the EZ has at least 2 festoons impinging into it from the NEB,
particularly apparent in IR.
The NTrZ appears quite bland other than for some turbulence within it toward the P limb.
The NTrB is very thin and appears quite smooth.
I note what appears to be 2 red barges in the NTeB with a small red oval preceding them.

The attached image was obtained with my ASI120MC color video camera coupled to the CPS-1100EdgeHD telescope with a 1.5x Barlow.
Optically,the system gives f/18.8,
but the 12 sixty second videos were processed with 1.5x drizzling in AS!2 giving an effective focal ratio of about f/26.
The image below is a derotated stack of 12 images taken between 02:25 and 02:44 UT.
Video capture with Firecapture 2.3,processed in AS!2,Registax6 and WinJUPOS
