I'll try too!
These were taken from my front yard in NYC suburbia with a Brandon Vernonscope 130mm APO and a Meade LPI. I sharpened them up with adobe photoshop.
They were taken on May 16th between 10:00 pm and 11:30 DST.

P.S. I notice the "attachment view" looks better!

This is a boring side of Jupiter but check out the details of the SEB and NEB. Note also the the "bug" on the left side of the EB.

This image was taken in Cebu City, Philippines using a Celestron C8 SCT mounted on an AP900GTO mount. I used an Astrophysics Barcon and AP extention tubes to achieve f/30. Taken on May 23, 2004 at 11:11UT. I used a Philips Toucam Pro webcam.

The exposure time of these images was 1/25sec, Gamma at 0, Gain 5% and White Balance Manual, at 5fps with my telescope working at f/30. 540 uncompressed images were stacked with 1.5 Resampling in Registax.

Here's an image of Jupiter on a night of perfect seeing! I used my Celestron C8 SCT mounted on an AP900GTO mount. F/30 was achieved using an Astrophysics 2" Barcon, Maxbright Diagonal (also works as UV-IR blocking filter) and tube extenders. I used a Toucam Pro webcam as my imager. Imaged at Cebu City on May 25, 2004 at around 11:19UT.

Wow, what fantastic pictures.

I have really enjoyed looking at all these great photos, a lot fo you have great talent.

But what i found interesting, was the great photos took with 4-10 inch telescopes. it just shows that you don't need a 14 inch to get great photos.

Great photos guys, but sadly i can't post any.

After a period of lurking, time has come for my first post...looks like it's going to be quite difficult to find a winner here, but it certainly won't be me :jump:

Anyway, here are my two Jupiter photos, shot in Zagreb, Croatia, from my apartment's balcony on 29.03. and 20.05.2004.
Equipment used was 127mm Orion Apex Mak-Cass, Celestron Ultima 2x Barlow, Vixen Super Polaris and ToUCam. Stacking in Registax.

My name is David Kolb. I am from Lawrence, KS USA.
Here is a picture of Jupiter that I took April 1, 2004 at 4:54 UT.
I used a Meade LXD55 8" SCT, ToUcam Pro, IR blocking filter, Meade #647 flip mirror, JMI NGF S focuser, and a 3X barlow.

K3CCDTools was used to capture the video clip, using 1/33 sec exposure and 5 fps. 500 frames stacked with Registax. Deconvolution applied with Image Analyzer. Final color adjustments and unsharp mask done in Paint Shop Pro.
