I wasn't expecting to image tonight, but I went outdoors to see the sky clearing to the south. The stars were twinkling and the sky could've clouded over at any time, so we skipped the C14 and I pulled out the 90mm Mak for a quick setup. Sky conditions were very good! I believe this is one of my best photos from this scope!

The North Temperate Belt is thin. The southern edge is orange while the north is dark.
The North Equatorial Belt appears to have a few new rifts.
The Equatorial Zone, except for the southern edge, is still orange.
The South Equatorial Belt appears to have a dark spot on its northern edge approaching the central meridian.
The SEBs is dark compared to the rest of the belt.
The South Polar Red Spot is past the CM.
