    Ahoy Antoine,

    I,m now a proud member of the JDTLS club ;-)

    Below are three additional observations for you to include in your analysis.

    Jupiter 5 Jan. 2011

    UT 00:30:20 Hs 53° 17.2'
    UT 00:39:21 Hs 53° 31.2'

    UT 00:58:16 Hs 53° 34.3'

    This should move the Longitude a bit closer.

    I was very lucky to get in daytime Jupiter because of the daytime planet observation limitations of the whole horizon that is on the Cassens Plath. The sea horizon field of view is limited as well. I should have followed -up with some early twilight observations as a check.
