The seeing deteriorated somewhat after the run for my last image, but the 5 RGB runs I did as the GRS rotated out of view still present a reasonable image of the planet. Traditionally the planets have been presented south up because that is how they appeared in telescopes in the Northern Hemisphere as they were inverted through the telescope. I present this image south up as it gives different and beautiful perspective as a contrast to the north up view seen so often these days.
