Catching a view of Jupiter

Hi IIS,

I'm keen to get up the blue mountains this weekend given clear skies and would like to get a good view of Jupiter though conditions seem far from optimal. As i see on the charts sunset is roughly 17:50 at which point Jupiter should be at around 30 altitude and have set by 20:30. Do you think Jupiter would be visible in these conditions or should i head up a little later and get a good look at saturn?

And if conditions are bad are they forecast to improve in the near future or degrade?

Cheers, Mitch.

Side note: what does everyone use to carry their gear? I've placed an order for a hockey stick bag and am looking at picking up a foam case from Jaycar for the bits but i would love to hear your solutions
