A thunderstorm was passing through as I went to bed last night, but occasionally this results in nice, clear skies afterwards here and I had a feeling. So I left the 'scope out to equilibrate and set my "astro alarm" (vibrate only, so as not to wake my better half) for the wee hours.

 

Very much worth it, as the skies were very clear when I woke. Seeing was OK, but not great. Here are the results. As David has previously mentioned, struggling for good contrast this season not quite sure why ... had to push the gamma harder than usual to cut through the "haze".

The variation in thickness of the STZ are interesting, as are the sheer number of white ovals present in the south and north temperate zones. And there is all kinds of turbulence in the NEB, as there has been for a while now. Lots going on as always, which is why I love Jupiter so much ... such a dynamic atmosphere!

 

I also managed some time on Saturn and Mars (first time in a while!) although conditions had worsened by then ... still working on that data.

 

Thanks for looking!

As you observed, what a lot of white ovals you have there in the North and South. I wonder if it signifies anything in particular.  Another very attractive Jupiter from you Darren!

Thank you! Yes, always nice to be able to include multiple moons.  smile.gif

Thank you! The atmosphere seems particularly "busy" in general at the moment, e.g. the NEB.

Good evening and congratulations for this wonderful picture! Well done.
I like very much the sharpness of Jupiter as well as the different satellites that give depth to the image. Thank you for sharing.
