I've been looking forward to processing this dataset for a while given how this was the first night in July with the Great Red Spot front and center (although it's not the only or even the best night with it there!). Of course, it wouldn't be a complete session without Mars and Saturn, both of which also were imaged under great conditions. Neither of them look much different from the previous nights.

Fantastic shots, sir! All of them. I don't know what you're working with, but it must be some high end equipment! Thanks for taking and sharing these with those of us that aren't AP'er's. Well done!

Thanks everyone for likes and comments! These are the last C8 shots for a while, and now it's time for me to work on the C14 data. Let's just say I'm really excited to share those based on what I have processed so far (although a Jupiter photo has been posted in a few places if you want to see it before it's posted here with the rest).
