2019 June 11 1140 UT. 102mm maksutov x130, seeing Ant III. Melbourne, Aus. Went out to catch the GRS near mid-transit, expecting it to be less obvious in view of recent reports of it shrinking. I was surprised indeed to notice it very easily and it’s distinctly orange hue. Jupiter is high in the winter sky here and that is an advantage compared with views from the UK. Kind thoughts, Bob
