What program are you using that shows the pole and data like that? I see quite a few ppl post similar pictures so I assume it must be some fairly commonly used software?

Thanks. I use Photoshop. I select Jupiter and adjust the contrast setting to usually about 10. It darkens the edges slightly while keeping the middle brightness fairly constant. I like the effect.
