Jupiter from last night using the University of Leicester's 20 inch Planewave DK telescope. Seeing was fairly poor but some interesting details present on the disk including a dark EZ filled with yellowish material and an active NEB. The NTB and NNTB virtually invisible- quite a change compared to the planet's look a few years back.
