Jupiter from Melbourne last night May 17, 2019

First image for this apparition - nice to see Jove blazing away again this year - never really perfect seeing, but good enough to capture lots for details.

12.5" f/5 scope with ASI290mm camera.

Clear skies.

That is a very nice Jupiter, not a bad start for the season.

Just read a report on Spaceweather.com that Anthony Wesley as imaged Jupiters Red Spot shedding off strips of itself

Something to certainly keep tabs on, would be interesting to watch if the storm finally dissapates, we know that it has been shrinking for decades now.

Lots of detail John, I just seem to get above avg. The GRS is now really tiny compared with past observations.

Thanks John - good to see you imaging as well!!

Will just keep my thread going rather than start a new one.

Another earlier image from the 17th attached showing the GRS and then one from this morning in poor conditions which does show the developing situation around the GRS.
