After a successful set of images with the 90mm Mak and no signs of clouds, we decided to take out the C14 while there was time. Turns out that was a really good decision since this is our best RGB image the apparition so far. However, it did end up being disturbed by a thin layer of clouds.

The North North Temperate Belt is showing hints of orange within its otherwise brown clouds.
The North Temperate Belt is thin. The southern edge is faintly orange while the north is a thin dark line.
There is a white oval on the NEBn at the central meridian.
The North Equatorial Belt has a new rift past the CM.
The Equatorial Zone, except for the southern edge, is still orange. However, there is a subtle orange smudge at the CM on the EZs.
The South Equatorial Belt has a teal spot with a detached tail on its northern edge. I don't recall seeing anything with this color on Jupiter before.
The SEBs is dark compared to the rest of the belt.
There is a bright spot just off the SEBs on the CM.
White Oval BA is rising with the STB Ghost trailing it.
There is a subtle blue feature to the west of Oval BA. Is this an STB structured segment?
The South Polar Red Spot is setting.
