I've been playing with Winjupos for a few weeks and thanks to Trevor's instructions after seeing his wonderful Saturn North Polar Hex animation I've done a couple of Jupiter runs from last Nov. The seeing was not great but this was the longest capture I acquired (22-07 to 23-41) and with a Ganymede transit making it quite interesting. Unfortunately the image measuring process has squished the moon.

2 animations, north and south :

Thanks guys! Would be nice to have some quality data to use this process with but that has been in short supply of late. Will dig out my Mars data from last year which I'm confident will produce a full global map.
