Captured the attached images 11 nights ago and finally got around to finish processing them.  Jupiter in particular is still showing some reasonable detail, managed to get some very steady seeing.  Unfortunately by the time I got to Saturn (I wish) the seeing was starting to go.  Hopefully we will still get a few good nights before the window closes.  Thanks for looking.

Fantastic images! I especially like the detail you managed to get on Saturn's rings.

Very nice…among the best renditions of the C-ring out there outside of Hubble!

 

Nothing but dust storms and clouds over the Red Centre at present…

That Saturn is outstanding! I like that you can see the entire polar hexagon along with the central storm. Well done!

Very good outcomes Brett - as I intimated in my reply to you in my thread...we've spent a lot of time on Jove this year...& the effort in getting things set up so that the scope is cooled etc as soon as it gets dark enough plays a part in how tired I am with imaging Jove...at least Neptune & Uranus will allow us to eat our evening meal at a respectable time..! :lol:
