Nice, quiet and unusually warm (26 C) night again. M29, Jupiter. I visually saw Great Red Spot for the first time ...

Simas,

Excellent observations of M29 and Jupiter. M29 is an attractive open cluster in Cygnus. You have recorded a good amount of features over Jupiter. Congratulations on viewing the Great Red Spot (GRS) for the first time. Thank you for sharing them with us all.

I took the liberty in rectifying your Jupiter observation and trimming it a little. I hope that you like it.

Carlos
