galaxian 78,

Very nice record of the appearance of Jupiter and its 4 brightest moons.
You recorded some very fine detail on the planet's cloud tops. Excellent work.

Frank :)

An excellent observation of Jupiter. You have captured much detail over the disk of Jupiter. The North Equatorial Belt (NEB) and the Great Red Spot (GRS) are prominent. The Galilean satellites and nearby star add to the scene as well. Thank you for sharing it with us all.

Carlos

Nice work, galaxian. The GRS really stands out since the SEB has gone away--thanks for the view.
