Auto Dob 250 + DFK & 5x Powermate= f26. Seeing for this capture was about 5/10
1.5x drizzle :
Here is another version this time de-rotating stacks from 11.51pm to 12.18am so a 30 min capture. I've used more saturation on this one and smoothed the limbs.

I did not see the small ovals though. Seeing didn't allow that much power.
Thanks for posting. I always like to try confirm my level of detail (or see what I missed) using pictures posted here.
Nice picture, and very natural in appearance. Many are somewhat overprocessed making contrast look much higher than with visual observations.
Again, thanks for posting, and nice work.

Your comments are very much appreciated.
Keeping things natural is my goal for sure producing a photo as if flying past Jupiter. I did have a quick look through the eyepiece before packing up for the night and the transparency was so poor I could only just make out the central bands. It always amazes me what extra detail can be gleaned from imaging.

Don't forget any more than 90 sec and you'll get rotational blurring

Thought I'd add a non drizzle image from a single 3 min avi. Personally I prefer the drizzle shots as they are more subtle though some may disagree?
I like the drizzle'd one's myself, but it's very personal. All around nice shots, wonderful color and softness with a good amount of detail!

Cheers Mike its thanks to your excellent youtube gimp tutorial that I softened the limbs on that 2nd image.
