thansk! It really is possible if seeing cooperates, but it has to be damn steady otherwise you won't see nothing.

Just after sunset last night seeing was excellent again and at 267x Jupiter was fantastic showing a wealth of festoon activity and even the SEB appeared uneven and curdled. I could even hint at a dark marking on Ganymede again. Sadly, the seeing went to absolute soup in the following half hour, bad enough to the point where I just packed up.
