After some days rest. I processing Saturn again. I think my work could not let every satisfied. Then just go ahead.
in June 19,seeing is bad, the "details" are very blur,not as well as before. But a dark spot show obviously. I choose the time of it near CM to processing.

The spot is very round... but doesn't look like a moon shadow. Impact scar?

Congratulations ZZ - it looks like you've captured the dark spot and confirmed imo if your time shown is Beijing time (UT +8 hours) because then your coordinates would be very similar to those in my images 3 days earlier here: http://www.cloudynig...5940555/page...

I won't rehash earlier comments except to note that your "enthusiastic" processing does create a somewhat unusual appearance for this long-lived dark spot.....I appreciate that you've said you don't understand Saturn etc coordinates but you really should think about working out some of the simple means of plotting/confirming details. :)

All you need is the "ephemerides" section in "Tools" of WinJupos which you must have already for your derotations and a simple explanation of how the coordinates are used: CM3 has taken over mostly but a simple explanation of all 3 "Systems" can be found here on the left hand side of the 2nd page... :)

Thanks , Darryl. I am no interesting this before. But now it seems the coordinates can help me to locating the details. May it be worth have a try.
