Jupiter is so low that only half of the telescope could see over the lip of the dome, so effectively only a 125mm telescope – not 250mm! Surprised I got anything at all at this altitude.

Not much detail visible but the infrared version is much sharper, cutting through the atmospheric turbulence better, and shows the Great Red Spot as white. The SEB is clearly changing and shows white in the colour image. Is this part of the unravelling of the GRS that is reportedly happening?
