Jupiter | 2019-07-09 4:04 | RGB

The third night of excellent planetary imaging, but also the third night of breezy conditions too intense for the CGEM DX and C14, so this is another session using the C8.


  • White Oval Z is approaching the central meridian.
  • The EZ, except the southern edge, is orange.
  • The Great Red Spot has a small flake on its western edge.
  • Two green-ish SEB rings are approaching the GRS from the east, carrying with them the potential for more flakes.
  • The STB contains a small white oval with a dark boundary.
