Seeing was a little better today.
Jupiter is still very low in the sky and the sun is rising earlier as we approach the vernal equinox.
The GRS and Oval BA are approaching each other again. Both can now be seen the the same frame.
The GRS has a strong red color. The wake of the GRS is very turbulent.
Note the two spots on the SEBn following the GRS. The NEB is narrow in this region.
It is interesting to note that the NEBn is becoming pale while the southern part is dark red. The SPR red spot can also be seen.
In methane band,it is interesting to note that the left half of the EZ is bright in methane band while the right half looks normal.
Condition was a bit challenging today. Seeing was not great and I had to deal with imaging between clouds.
Two moon of Jupiter can be seen on these images.
Ganymede is in transit while Io just exited on the right.
The SEBn is very dark while the rest of the SEB is pale. Note the ochre haze on the EZ.
The NEB is dark. Note the dark streaks on the NEB below Ganymede.

There is a discontinuous dark band in the NNTeB.
To its south in the NEBn,there is a small dark red barge,although it is almost circular.
The festoons in the north part of the EZ are subdued compared to the other side of the planet.
The complex wake of the GRS is very turbulent and the GRS is somewhat misshapen,
although it may be a visual effect due to the shape of the thick band of dark red material to the north.
The RSH is almost nonexistent to the south and there is a band and finger of grey coloured material protruding into the STrZ,
where it seems to take on a more blue colour.
The colour is quite different to the more normal light green hue on the f side and north of the GRS.
The chimney to the north of GRS remains open and connects to a green-grey band in the SEBn
There is an almost hexagonally shaped feature inside the GRS in this NIR image.

an ir610nm filter image where considerable details are evident in all despite being over 16 weeks still to opposition. :)
