Another morning of very good seeing and I made 9 RGB runs of 1 minute per colour channel. The GRS was in transit. There is now no evidence of the red stream seen emanating from the GRS and entering the Red Spot Hollow that i saw a few days ago. There is good resolution of detail at both poles. A very bright spot/ eddy can be seen in the GRS turbulent wake, which seems narrow and subdued at this time.
