The seeing here was better than the forecast suggested but didn't set up the camera gear, just visual with the 10" dob. Watching the Red Spot transiting and Europa getting closer and then begin transiting too, closely followed by the shadow. Somehow managed to spend a few hours at the eyepiece watching it all unfold.
One trick I did try was using an Baader UHC filter which really highlighted the equatorial cloud bands though turning the rest of Jupiter a duck egg blue colour.
