Hi everyone,

 

Got some great seeing over two days in Melbourne this week allowing some useful imaging of Jove.

 

12.5 inch f5 scope, 5 x Powemate, 290mm camera.

 

Clear skies,

 

John K.

Great images with some fascinating detail in the small Southern ovals, some with pin sized central 'holes' and also in their interactions with each other.

Thanks everyone, appreciate it.

 

Nothing is a substitute to good seeing and a rarity from my location in Melbourne.

 

Clear skies.
