Weather forecast was very good but a bunch of high thin clouds moved in just after astronomical dusk.  Pain in the behind.  Seeing gradually declined during the night rendering my Saturn and Mars imaging pointless.  I did manage to get a decent Jupiter image.

 

This is 5 20% stacks derotated in WinJupos.  I took the advice of many on the forum and worked with 60 - 80% histograms last night instead of the 25 - 40% attempts I had been making earlier.  This did seem to produce better results.  Also found that as suggested focusing using a low gamma value on FC was helpful as well.

Good that you got something. High altitude cloud has been a real problem here too.
