Jupiter May 11th 2018 03:37 UT (26 min)

Sky conditions regarding seeing and transparency were far from good. I also observed some cirrus clouds at the moment of Jupiter highest elevation when it crossed the meridian. Temperature of 18 degrees celsius and zero wind, which made the night very calm and beautiful. Again, what helps is the elevation of Jupiter, almost at the zenit.

I was able to get five good RGB sequences to process and they were later de-rotated with Winjupos software.

North Equatorial Belt is very disturbed with a  large looping festoon clearly apparent.
