Here are two Jupiter drawings which I made this morning. In drawing 1 I have exaggerated the NEB and it's colour in order to emphasize the structure. Io has recently emerged from behind Jupiter. By the time of drawing 2,seeing was really rather good,and a number of bluish festoons are visible in the EZ,and two white ovals in the STZ. The NTB,NNTB and STB have a fragmentary appearance.

Last night I had an extended session in excellent seeing,I recorded data almost continually from 11pm to 4am. This period covered a GRS transit which was followed by an Io + shadow transit. Despite the dire jetstream predictions it seems that this site (Exmouth in Western Australia) can sometimes turn on steady skies.
Here's one image from near the end of the session - recorded just after 4am local time. Io is visible at lower right.
Once again this is processed using my laptop and very dodgy display,so the contrast and brightness may not be quite right.

You're going to be inflicted with more of these... here's an image from very early in the session showing the GRS and Oval BA mid transit. Lots of vortices around the edge of the GRS make it look a bit hairy. The area of influence of the GRS is clearly seen here extending all around it. Oval BA seems to be only a few days away from conjunction with the GRS,there's a clear gap between them although it seems that a tendril of dark material is coming off BA to the upper left as we see it here.
I'm testing a new image enhancement package for the Gimp called FX-Foundry. This image was done using the "separate light and shadow" enhancement,it looks good on this laptop screen anyway

Getting through the data now... here is one more interesting image from Aug 18.

and I thought it might be kinda fun to have another try at Ganymede while the seeing was good...

this is probably the best image from the session,and I spent much more effort on the processing than for the other images.
