On the evening of the 23rd, Jupiters Red Spot was visible from North America from 10:28pm Oct 23 to 12:55am Oct 24. The 4.5 should have ssen it, but we did have a half moon. Also filters are greatly needed for Jovian observing. I use a light blue of yellow and blue to see the red spot. If the atmospheric conditions were not that great, sometimes the red spot can be invisible. Remember the "red" spot isn't red, it's a pale rusty brown color. Hence the color filters. You're doing OK...
