OK Here's my Jupiter from earlier in the season on November 6 2012 at 1:39 in the morning.

Taken in the back yard using an Orion 127 Maksutov Cassegrain with the Orion Starshoot 3MP camera.
60 second video file at 10FPS was processed with Registax including wavelets. Passed through PixInsight for rescaling.
