Fair seeing with splashes of good for this image. Surprised to see surface features on Ganymede which agree very well with the Winjupos simulation. 15 minutes derotated data.
Seeing sample at 02:13UT

A view of Jupiter at 0237 UT on April 18 with a quickly brightening sky and very poor seeing. A good amount of detail for a still far away and low lying Jupiter, GRS is seen rotating out of view to the right, the North and South main belts appear pale in color yet pretty active, a lovely dark blue festoon in the Northern most edge of the equatorial region and Oval BA (the large white spot mid-left) nicely framed by another couple of white ovals. 11 minutes of derotated data files (60sec duration, about 235fps each, trimmed to 10% in AS!3)
A first attempt at Jupiter for the 2020 Aparrition. Although conditions were unfavorable, a good amount of detail can be seen such as the GRS with it's notable extended shape and the opening in the SEB just to the top left of the GRS easily seen. Taken with the C9,25 and ASI224/ ADC, focused with the Pegasus Astro Focuscube. 7x 60sec derotated files.
