Paul,

Outstanding observations of Jupiter showing a wealth of detail. The North Equatorial Belt (NEB) is full of interesting albedo features (e.g. bright rifts, dark condensations). Large bright ovals are visible along the southern border of the NEB. Bright ovals are noted over the South South Temperate Belt (SSTB). Thank you for sharing them with us all.

Carlos

Impressive! I looked this morning to the planet and did only see a fraction of the details you managed to see.
