Another alternative and one I've enjoyed using over the years with great success is WinJUPOS.  The best source for downloading it is from Grisha's homepage here.

That is the standard by which I compare other software.

The Android app Jovemoons works well for me.

This is the reference that I use the most.  In fact, I used it tonight, and the app view matched up well with what I saw through the scope.

Win Jupos!

 

The Sky X Serious Astronomer compensates for the GRS as well. I have checked it out against Win Jupos and the GRS is in exactly the same position.

 

Starry Night 6 would as well but you have to manually update the GRS Longitude every 3 months or so. If I remember correctly, I had to go through WinJupos to get the longitude of the GRS.

I think the present longitude for the GRS is 110*.  That would have to be entered into the program.

Moving this back to the front page. Still getting some nice views of low down Jove as seeings been good  enough to support 290X-370X . David
