A mixed night for planetary imaging. While seeing was very good, it was quite breezy, a weak point for the CGEM DX when the C14 with imaging equipment is saddled on it. To take advantage of the night, I used the C8 instead.
- White Oval Z is about to set.
- The SEBn trailing the GRS is bright.
- The Great Red Spot well past the central meridian.
- The GRS wake appears to have a new rift suggested by its bright appearance.
