CLat: -2.90°

Description

My first time since late-April imaging next to a parking lot at my university. Conditions were bad for imaging and the optical tube was warm, causing intense heat plumes that worsened the situation. The gusts of wind were intense enough to push my laptop off the table if I didn't hold it down.

Notes:

  • White Oval Z, visible as a notch in the North Equatorial Belt, is rising.
  • The Equatorial Zone is orange.
  • The Great Red Spot is rising.
  • An SEBs ring is approaching the central meridian.
