I had a pretty good night on 14th May (my last image was from then) but the cold chilled my bones, and resulted in my buying an insulated jacket so I was imaging for this session on the 16th lagged up like an old boiler.  As someone said, "There is no bad weather, only bad clothing".   

 

I spent a goodly amount of time checking collimation for this session and I also worked throughout with the ADC, despite the planet's altitude and despite the resulting slight appearance of oversampling during capture  - the results having been better with the ADC than without on the 14th.

 

Here are three images synthesized from the session:

And here is Jupiter with Io from a single video; Io is not separately processed but simply emerged from the same sharpening process applied to the planet.

Yeah!!! wonderful images. I had to zoom my monitor to see all the fine detail - might be worth presenting them a little larger!

Thanks for the likes and kind comments.  I do generally prefer to post them a bit smaller but will look out a larger version tomorrow.

I know what you mean, less is often more, but on this occasion I think the level of detail demands a bit more of my retina.

Amazing details! I do not mind a bigger version either. I have the same problem of oversampling, for now I increase the size of the images by 150%. Anyway, great captures!

Well, "always leave them wanting more, but if they actually ask for it, give it to them!"

 

Here is a somewhat larger version of one image above:
