Seeing did not start well. Waited hoping seeing would improve. When Jupiter reached near zenith in alt seeing improved greatly! Happy to get decent detail in the GRS and the Oval BA as well as the current turbalance in NEB. Hope to have more images in IR and RGB. Thanks for looking.

Wow, so very nice! I wish I had gotten out this morning but I was so sick when I went to bed, when the alarm went off I turned it off and rolled back over to sleep. I'm glad you were able to get those images.

Really nice job there Frank.

Good seeing sure helps a lot as does sympathetic processing, that is, resisting the temptation to over do it and reducing the level of sharpening as the data gets better rather than the other approach which tends to turn Jove into a facsimile of a decorated Pizza.

Very well done.
Regards
Trevor

Thanks to all for your comments! Good seeing data always makes processing much easier Trevor. Here is another image with Io on the approach. Thanks again!

Wonderful work, Frank. I hope to have C14 out this week for some shots of Jupiter, too. Thanks for sharing.
