Slightly improved seeing on June 14, 2020 compared to the previous few nights. Once again, the conditions for Mars were noticeably better than the other two planets, although I'm not convinced the reason is entirely because of altitude.

After finishing a complete set of Jupiter images with the ASI290MM, I swapped in the ASI224MC to make a time-lapse of Callisto exiting from eclipse by Jupiter's shadow. I had a few issues with getting the best focal length with this camera's bigger pixels and dealing with dust on the ADC, so I got started partway through the event without it.

 

I encourage you to click on the thumbnail below to see a full-sized WebP version on my website, which allows for higher quality animations than GIFs (and isn't limited to 500 KB like here on CN). Should work unless you use Internet Explorer or any browser on iOS (although I hear the beta for iOS 14 supports them).
