Conditions were quite tough for imaging. I usually start with the planet farthest in their east-to-west track in the sky. Jupiter is currently farthest along, but I wanted to wait for the Great Red Spot to rotate into view, so I started with Saturn instead.

The southernmost regions peeking out from under the rings are visibly bluer than the rest of the planet.
