Greed kept me out until 2.30 am local time on this 21st June. The seeing was not good and the freezing moisture atmosphere periodically crystallized into a blanket of thin to moderate cloud which would then disperse for a while but probably worsened the seeing. However remaining prospects are not good over the next few days and this week there is a meeting of local planetary imagers with good coffee and tasty cake provided by the host. In order to take advantage of this free repast, felt I needed another image from June to ensure I would be allowed through the door. The best image of my night caught the GRS in transit but there is not a lot of detail and I had to push the image a lot. Saturn was from nearly hour earlier than the Jupiter image and very noisy even at low resolution. A thicker and more stable looking blanket of cloud at 2.30am put paid to my plans for another go at Saturn. Hopefully this contribution will suffice as if I have any more such late nights the coffee will be very needed indeed during the pre-cake agenda!
