After a surprisingly successful first set of captures with the 90mm Mak, I decided to step up my game and inserted a 2x barlow into the imaging train. Previous attempts had failed because of poor tripod stability, but this time with the barlow was much more successful.
- The North Temperate Belt is thin. The southern edge is orange while the north is dark.
- The North Equatorial Belt appears to have a few new rifts.
- The Equatorial Zone, except for the southern edge, is still orange.
- The South Equatorial Belt appears to have a dark spot on its northern edge approaching the central meridian.
- The SEBs is dark compared to the rest of the belt.
- Oval BA is rising with a stream of dark clouds to its north.
- The South Polar Red Spot is past the CM.
