Thanks for the heads up but I've been viewing Jup and Sat with the Moon Killer ETX90 and didn't pick up on that!  It was pretty rough.  I could see the moons and two colored bands on Jup but could not tell if I was seeing the red spot or if it was my imagination.  My 5mm Paradigm at 250 was my highest mag view but certainly not a clear view.  Saturn was OK but could not see much but yellowish planet and rings.  Certainly no separation in the rings.
