Jupiter -- November 10 in Good Seeing
Posted 11 November 2012 - 02:46 PM
Thanks to a hurricane (in which the lowest pressure recorded at my observatory was 950mb as the center of circulation passed overhead and the highest wind gust was 74mph), a glancing blow from a “nor’easter”, and endless nights of clouds, it’s been nearly two months since I was able to image. We had clear skies and fairly good seeing at times last night for these images taken as the GRS rotated into view. Jupiter certainly has grown since I last saw it in mid-September!

Sadly the long term outlook is not good for the US, with a return of an El Nino pattern. Maybe thats better for you in the northeast? Don't know but in the southwest it means more disturbances passing through.

I hope you'll get good conditions arround opposition to make up for the past two months.
