After a few months of weather, work, and other commitments not lining up for me finally got the scope out to and got some captures. On Jupiter I got the GRS just before it passed off the disc, on Saturn if you squint there is a slightly lighter area near the pole that might be the storm.

 

The seeing was probably average.

 

Gear:

CPC1100, ASI224MC, Baader UV/IR cut filter, 2x Barlow

 

Both are stacked from 3000 of 6000 frames.

 

Thanks for having a look.

I did not know there was a storm up there on Saturn but I do see a lighter colored elliptical are near the pole as you mentioned. Nice grabs!
