My primary objective this morning was to try and capture the upcoming Juno flyby track and I was fortunate to be able to catch a full set of data.
The RGB was derotated over about 30 mins. Unfortunately there will still be movement over the coming 4 days,
but hopefully Juno catch a view of the prominent SEBs ring,some of the dark STZ/STB dark remnants,
Ovals BA and A8 (looks like it has an extension coming off it) and maybe the LRS-1.
I suspect the NEBs festoon may have moved by Friday (sorry,Glenn....),
but lets see. I have 3 more PJ26 imaging windows on 8,10 and 11 April,
but the forecast is not promising for any of them at this point.
Whilst waiting for the PJ26 track to approach the CM,
I took the time to capture the region around the GRS before it rotated out of view. Seeing was not as good as it would be a bit later.

I overslept today and did not wake up till 5am.
I rushed to image Jupiter and fortunately the seeing was excellent.
For the methane band though,the GRS was over exposed because I captured it a few minutes before sunrise.
The GRS is well resolved in these images. Note the extension on the f side of the GRS.
Is flaking still happening? There are bright outbreaks on the wake of the GRS.
Note the bluish streak on the NTB on the lower left of the GRS.
The NEB is dark and narrow in this region with a lot of rifting.

Hi all, the seeing continues to be very unstable, only a very short
window was available this morning to record this image showing the GRS
rising at lower left using a 750nm longpass filter. Six individual
images captured over 11 minutes were combined to get this result.
