Well worth the effort of getting up early this morning, as I was treated to the best seeing I've experienced yet this year.

This image is a de-rotation of 4 x 90s captures, with the top 15% of frames stacked for each capture.

The NEB has a think, brown band with a significant amount of turbulence at the northern edge. Numerous white ovals can be seen across the face of the planet, not least being those at the northern edge of the STZ. Hints of white ovals can also be seen closer to the south pole.

Thanks for looking!
