Hoping for that good seeing the next night luckily happened ! Started out in ok seeing but as Jupiter rose the seeing became very good. Have not seen this kind of seeing in southern Az in a long while. Caught the "boring" side of Jupiter with the Oval Ba rising in the west. Was able to capture a lot of data for future use.

Thank you Paul, hoping your seeing was good last night. Here is another image from an earlier session when seeing was improving.

Excellent shot!

 

I'm curious about your presentation angle…how did you pick it? Several users post Jupiter south-side up, and I was recently pondering how orientation produces a significantly different perception, especially in color. I even created a graphic of (practically the same face of Jupiter of your image) to assess the difference in feel:

Just wondering…

Good question. We used to post "south up" because that was the typical telescopic view. But with the advent of the robotic exploration of the planets, north is frequently up, especially on maps.

OTOH, close-in views of planets and satellites are frequently oriented for visual appeal.

Let me see what ALPO says about orientation...

Good job on taking advantage of the opportunity and the superb imaging. That’s darn nice seeing. Please send some of that to the eastern US!

 

Here is he best that I have been able to get.

At least for Lunar studies,  ALPO says this,  and I suspect this applies to planetary studies:

 

The other orientation system is the IAU system, officially adopted by the International Astronomical Union (IAU) in 1961, indicated also in Figure 1. With the unaided eye again, let's duplicate our previous observation at Full Moon at midnight in the northern hemisphere of the Earth. North (N) will be up and South (S) will be down, just as was the case in the classical system, but West (W) will be true West on the lunar surface, toward the left. East (E) will likewise denote true East on the Moon, toward the right. Thus, Mare Crisium will be near the East lunar limb, while Tycho remains to the South. In the eyepiece of our astronomical telescope, the inverted and reversed image will show South toward the top of the field, North will be at the bottom. East will now be to the left, and West is to the right. It will be helpful to remember where certain craters are with respect to the IAU system so that one does not  become confused.
The ALPO Lunar Selected Areas Program (SAP) has adopted the practice of always using the IAU system orientation when discussing and recording observations.

Thank you all for your comments, as for planet orientation there for awhile I would present Jupiter south up occasionally but know prefer north up slight tilt. Just a preference.

Thanks Darryl, how true... not to long ago seeing frustration was present but that comes with planetary imaging. So when you finally get good seeing your patience is rewarded and it makes all worth while.

Science journals have submission requirements...for them, orientation is important. And, if one's goal is to contribute, then submit accordingly.

Nice results, Frank. I was gnoshing on smoked brisket...marveling how nice our sky was for Father's Day.

Is there a boring side to Jupiter? Personally I've yet to find it ...  :)

 

Nice images!

Thank you DMach, have to agree with you something interesting on all sides of Jupo.

No - I have it on good authority it's the "backside" of Jove Darren! :lol:

 

That's a lovely last Jove posted Frank! waytogo.gif waytogo.gifwaytogo.gif
