According on the Stellarium, GRS will start to transit at around 3:00am but it did not happen until 4:00am this morning. I wish I could wait till 5:00 am but I felt tired already. T_T
Image was captured using Meade ETX 125 and Philips Toucam Pro. SharpCap, Castrator and Regsitax were used for acquisition and processing of pictures.

I had again the chance of imaging Jupiter after that monstrous monsoon using Meade ETX 125 and Toucam. 244 frames were registered and stacked using Registax, contrast adjusments were done using Gimp, image acquisition via SharpCap.
I was able to get my hands on a 12 inch dobs of a Manila Cathedral School for their star gazing activity. Such a big telescope gives well detail on objects. I tried it and imaged Mars and Saturn using my webcam, but oh boy it was neck breaking just to target the planets on the screen! But the pain is paid of the pleasure of the images produced from the 4 second clip I managed to capture.
The northern polar cap is now prominent
More detail present in this image, Cassini division, bands etc.
