Jupiter - what a difference a year makes

I previously made a comparison of Jupiter a year apart from images acquired late Feb/ early March. Here are two acquired late March/ early April. I was fortunate that conditions almost exactly a year apart allowed me to produce high quality images and certainly much higher quality than in the previous comparison. On 28th March I had several hours of outstanding seeing. As a result I was able to choose 5 RGB runs to derotate and integrate with WinJUPOS, which gave exactly the same aspect in terms of the positioning of the GRS, as the April 2019 image. Ganymede was just coming out from behind Jupiter in the 2018 image.
