Hi all,

It's been a while due to the vicious jet stream that's been overhead recently, but Happy New Year to all! Here's one from last night, in seeing that was on the better side of fair.

Great shot, Wayne.

I like the subtle color changes thru the northern and southern polar spots and regions. Detail out to the limbs is great. Looks like the center of eq belt gave you fits. Glad to see the GRS with nice detail (unlike a big triangle I've seen in some images including my own.) Beautiful detail in and around it. That cigar shaped band of storms underneath have been hanging there for awhile. Interesting.

Did you use a Flea 3?

It's always good to get that first image of the year in, especially when it's such a nice one.

Very nice, Wayne. A lot of detail in that image. But Jupiter has already started shrinking! :bawling:
