Seeing had improved slightly by the time I got around to imaging Jupiter. My usual order of imaging morning planets starts with Jupiter because it's currently the highest of the three, but I wanted to catch the GRS so I had to save it for last.

The Equatorial Zone is still slightly orange.
The Great Red Spot is rising.
The western part of the STB Spectre is setting.
Ganymede is approaching transit.
