On a night of stunningly good seeing, perhaps down around 1 arc second, I made a series of runs on Jupiter. For this one I made 10 RGB runs of 1 minute per colour channel as usual. After stacking with Autostakkert and wavelet sharpening with RegiStax, the resultant monochrome images were derotated and integrated in WinJUPOS for the final RGB integration with derotation. The video images on my computer screen were almost free from disturbance and this reflects in the resolution achieved. The Little Red Spot is about to rotate out of view and a fine string of pearls is visible in the S.S. Temperate Belt. An interesting wave like structure is apparent in the North Equatorial Belt
