Jupiter & GRS
Posted 31 October 2013 - 02:39 PM
Finally had some clear weather here on the morning of the 30th October and I was able to make an observation of Jupiter. Seeing was average, but there were a number of interesting features on display.
-STB quite dark and prominent in some sections.
-GRS certainly seems to be more prominent since I observed it last, the coloration is also more marked.
-The RSH seems to be very well defined; this might well be a contrast effect between the dark SEB which curves under the GRS and the the GRS itself.
-Light region seen in the SEBz just proc. the GRS.
-Io appeared on the Proc. limb at 0038UT.
-Europa was in transit throughout the observation. WINJUPOS showed it to be just fol. the GRS however I was unable to see it.
Also examined the planet with W#25A and W#80A filters. Intensity estimates made in IL as well as Red and blue.

Wonderful work. After several observations this year the GRS is showing very well. You captured its contrast very well.
