Highly variable seeing meant that I could only use 6 out of 10 stacks for WinJUPOS treatment from that evening. Animation covers 19 minute imaging run between 6:54 and 7:13 pm local time and consists of four nine minute composites.

Despite conditions reasonable detail has been resolved of the Amazonis hemisphere. South Pole faces up in this video.

Olympus Mons and three Tharsis volcanoes display a slight pinkish hue while western portion of the SPC is covered by a thick dust cloud. Mare Sirenum and a dark circular feature east of Phaethontis region are also on view. Solis Lacus continues to set over the eastern limb.
