Spots from the Window-sill 23/05/2019

Jupiter again from the window-sill

Poorer conditions than last night. Lots of thin cloud wafting about. PD camera this time but image poorer. However the GRS was predicted to do a meridian transit at 01:08 UT, so this time the dark blob on the SEB IS the GRS! I think the light spots are real too. See:http://spaceweathergallery.com/indiv_upload.php?upload_id=153728

I consider that despite the poor quality of the image, it a minor triumph that I can see the GRS at all from the window-sill!

Must get the proper scope out, without forgetting that “The best telescope is the one you use the most!”
