With making as many captures as I can for our Jupiter Movie Project, I see the difference that the seeing makes from day to day to the quality of the image. Many images are not worth posting, but some with good resolution or an interesting aspect may be worth it. The seeing was good and allowed me to capture a nice aspect with the GRS rotating into view. Even on the planet's limb the turbulent wake of the GRS is reasonably well resolved. The dark layer that surrounded the GRS and the SEB appears to be breaking up.
