Imaged Saturn very early last night. It is very low for me now and this will be my final data for this apparition. This is the 308th Saturn data set I have uploaded for this apparition to PVOL & ALPO. Of course the seeing was poor with considerable flag waving going on but in amongst it some useable frames. When I was processing I noticed that I have captured the long lived dark oval, it is best seen by dragging the image to & fro across the screen with a mouse. The movement helps to pick it out, it is just slightly toward the F side of the CM.
I have measured it to be at +45.4 L3 287, the data point fits my drift chart nicely.
Imaged Jove this morning in good seeing for the alt. Have attached an animation of 742nm IR data sets which resolves a plethora of detail. The individual data sets within the animation range from an alt of 25 degrees to 29 degrees.
Have also attached 3 of the 742nm IR images from the animation, fairly evenly spaced in time and also an RGB. The mid point of the RGB was at an alt of 30 degrees. I think this would be amongst the best low alt Jup data I have had for quite some time.
I note a quite prominent bright oval far South in the SPR, this appears in all 3 attached IR data sets and is obvious in the animation.
Oval BA is well resolved as is detail right across the field.
Thanks for looking
