Brad, I reckon that last image must be close to your personal best yet, despite the absence of Jove's most photogenic feature, the GRS.....high praise considering your lofty achievements this year and last....!

Thanks guys. Not sure if this is my best or not Darryl, but I'm glad it turned out well! It is hard sometimes to be subjective of the image quality when it's the "boring side"

Steve: I shot these around F29. From your latest images it looks like you are really finding the sweet spot with your scope and cam. I usually keep the gain in the 2700's in firecapture for all three channels. Sometimes I'll even push blue up to 3000 if the transparency is poor. Here is the firecapture data file for the Blue channel in the above image:
