The Great Red Spot is on the Central Meridian at the moment. At only 140X in my 10" reflector it is Salmon in color; reminds me of the view in decades past. The Seeing here, despite dark skies, can't support more magnification the past several nights.

Thanks for the tip! The only scope I have access to now is APM 100mm binos "the good ones" that can handle high mag. Supposed to be clear tonight so I'll look see, even if I have to wait for it to rotate around! My 29-inch Dob with (big!) off-axis stop also gives great resolution...but still has a foot of snow on the ground and is 1500 ft from the house and 150 ft up hill. Will have to wait for that!
