Was not intending to image this night but saw that CS had good seeing 4/5 as the forecast decided to give a go. Surprised to find the seeing more 5/5 that "hole" in the atmosphere was present steady to say the least. Caught Oval Ba and GRS rising in the west. Happy with the results!

I had to work and missed the chance to image. But, I did get some time at the eyepiece last night. The views were so good, I was hoping you and some of the other locals were eating up photons. Nice shot.

When I got set up last night I noticed that Jupiter seemed steadier than usual, glad to hear it was a widespread occurrence! I'll post my results later tonight.

Excellent shot, Frank…just what I was looking for. The Southern Temperate Belt is getting quite active to the east of the GRS; your shot shows me that Oval BA is the eastern boundary. On the night of the 23 June I could see something was going on through the eyepiece, but I was too late in my capture to see this (by the time my dinner guests left, the GRS was on the meridian, and I couldn't make out the details on the eastern limb). I'm hoping to capture this tonight, but my seeing prediction is once again abysmal (2.8 arcseconds resolution, 53m/s jet stream, 2/5 overall)…

Thank you Darryl, having the scope set up at all times helps take advantage of imaging whenever one feels the need. Thanks Kevin glad you were able to take advantage of the seeing. Thanks BQ hope your seeing comes around.

Another image taken later in the sessions with a bit more GRS in view. Thanks for the likes!

Getting BA and the GRS in the same shot with good color and without a huge amount of limb noise is a great result
