Seeing was pretty good tonight in spite of the 2/5 prediction. It was good enough to stare at Jupiter and the subject features through my 9mm ortho (300x mag) for a fair bit, and I could see Oval BA plain as day. I picked up Io's shadow through the eyepiece just as it emerged from the terminator, and its crispness invited me to shoot it. It was another blustery night, but at least I knew what to expect while driving the mount. Here's a cross-eye stereo pair animation of it all as it passed through zenith:
