Finally caught a break in the clouds on 23rd September. The GRS was in view during sunset, so it was a bit of a rush to align, collimate etc. and grab some frames before putting the kids to bed.

 

This produced the first image, which is a de-rotation of 4 x 2min data captures.

The skies remained clear for a while at least, allowing me to capture some more data and produce the second image. This is a de-rotation of 5 x 2min data captures and shows the trail of "chaos" the recent outbreak in the North Tropical Zone (NTrZ) is leaving behind it, which appears to be impacting the mighty north equatorial belt (NEB) itself. It looks somewhat like a comet streaking through Jupiter's atmosphere!

C11, ASI290MC, PowerMate 2x, ZWO ADC, UV/IR cut filter.

 

I was very much hoping the clear skies would hold and I might finally be able to image Mars, but alas clouds arrived to spoil the party. So the long wait with Mars this year continues.

 

Thanks for looking. smile.gif

Excellent shot!

 

That second shot looks like those old bullet shock wave pictures…

Your images are a tonic Darren as well as being the first CN post I have looked at for a few days. Marvelous late season detail on the storm tracks and numerous small white ovals and activity in the belts!

 

It is looking hopeful here of less gale force winds and rained/clouded out nights on Sunday and perhaps also Monday night and so your posting is just the thing for me to catch up with the planetary present (ce) of Jupiter and so encourage me to put some of my other homework aside get back to attempting some imaging.  Now if only that could be combined with some decent (continental) seeing smile.gif

Incredible detail! Wish I could reproduce what you're achieving with that equipment!

Cheers mate. I did have a similar thought ... it's tearing Jupiter's atmosphere a new one!

Glad you enjoyed it ... it was a tonic for me as well to get out there after so many cloudy nights. I've likewise been struggling to stay active on the forum, crazy time of year at work.

 

Very nice Darren!!! waytogo.gif waytogo.gif waytogo.gif

Thanks Darryl, means a lot. Hope you're keeping well!

Thanks Frank!

Thank you! Keep at it - practice helps of course, but it also means you'll be out there when the conditions come your way.  :)

That outbreak is really having an impact on the NEB, nice images.  I caught then on the previous night (22/9), will have them posted shortly.
