Yet another strange night last night. There were no clouds and almost no wind, so I thought
the seeing should have been good, but it wasn't. Jupiter was just a fuzzy ball and at times
I couldn't see the red spot or the cloud bands. It was a bit variable and sometimes getting better then
going bad again, making focusing very difficult. Towards the end of the third 3 minute video it just
suddenly went good. Was good for all of the 4th video, some of the 5th and the 6th was bad again.
So I ended up with one good 3 minute video, which this one is from.
I don't know if it was the jetstream higher up, or just trying to look through a lot of moisture
in the lower atmosphere as the dew came down.
