An ever so slightly foggy night with hardly any wind and the Jetstream out of the way provided me with by far the best seeing I've had this year.

For almost 3 hours Jupiter was very very steady (there was some waviness to the seeing in Blue light, but Red & Green were extremely steady).

This is pretty much one of the very best result images, with the very photogenic GRS,LRS & various artists almost exactly on the meridian.

These images were taken through my 30cm Orion Optics UK at 9000mm FL, individual AVI's were 2 minutes long per colour, multi-align in Autostakkert compensating for any rotational blurring. I tried derotating the final images in WinJupos but it was having trouble correctly doing the registration per colour, so I finally fell back to just doing a double alignment in Photoshop and combining the edge & center aligned versions together for this result.

Nice one Bart!

Sounds like the aligning was a lot of work but it paid off. Well done!
