Improved the title so it's not opinion based, and edited into the question the discussion in the comments.

comment Can Jupiter's bands be made out using a 15x70 pair of binoculars?
@HDE226868 That's what makes it opinion based in Stack Exchange close reason parlance. Those venturing to answer it would have to fill in the missing info, and that will inevitably be based on personal opinion. Granted, that might also make the question unclear. But the end result is the same; The question should be put on hold to prevent guessing and OP should be invited to edit and clarify the question. It can always be reopened once it's sufficiently clear that it can be successfully answered without conjectures and random chance.

comment Can Jupiter's bands be made out using a 15x70 pair of binoculars?
This is opinion based for several reasons; One is your own visual acuity. Second is the quality of optics you use. And third is that it would depend on the distance to Jupiter which in this year alone varied between ~ 4.25 and 6.25 AU. I would argue that no, it's not possible, but it would merely be an opinion even if I'm perfectly qualified to give one because I own a pair of 15x70 binoculars, too. It might be more prudent to test how valid claims of those that say it is possible are, than asking us for an opinion. ;)

comment Do we make predictions in our time, or local time?
It actually makes a lot of sense to measure (and quote) in our local time, from where observations are made, because you can only give predictions based on measurable data (information) we have about them. And since information about them travels towards us at the fastest with the speed of light in vacuum (for actual light on average a tiny fraction slower, depending on the medium density, but that doesn't slow down, say, gravitational waves or information about their remote-local time frame events such as transits), we can only quantify probability of events in our own local time frame, too.
