Almost gave up the imaging session,seeing was not good. A breeze kicked up which usually shows as unsteady seeing conditions in the upper atmosphere. But as Jupiter reached it's highest alt things seemed to steady. Not the best seeing but good enough. Thanks for looking.

Very nice Frank. A great result and the colors are bang on. I was out last night as well and had the same seeing, quite variable with only brief periods of clarity. Not sure I can match your colors but would like to. Well done!
