Usually one wouldn't bother when the jetstream is 220km but the wind was crossing at right angles and brought the good seeing. Western Australia has many cloudless nights which gives good opportunity to stay out for long periods. This night I was out for 3 hours and tried various barlows but went back to my original 1.2x, as was just magnifying pixels. It was great to wait for the GRS to rise and watch it come across the globe. Thanks for looking Luke.

Animation from 1 hour, had to reduce the file right down to the limitation of CN.

Great and I very much like the close images of the IR versus color on Jupiter.  Certainly would not want to rule out Darryl at this stage in the race but likely these latest images of yours may become the 2021 gold medal results for "Best looking gas giant images taken during highest Jetstream conditions"

Bloody ripper, mate!

 

For what it's worth, your GIF is only 81kB. You could make it twice as big and still be under the post limit of 500 kB. But the ducks nuts would be a link to an APNG hosted in the gallery. The APNG limit is 1600x1200, 50MB. If you did that, I might have to give up imaging planets altogether and just subscribe to your channel! cool.gif

Hi mate. Thanks but I wouldn't go that far. Darryl has had some lousy weather this year, but his images are a notch way above mine. A couple of nights after this the jetstream dropped giving very steady conditions.smile.gif

Hi BQ! Thanks for the help mate and pointing it out. I sorted it now. Imaging planets is relative to conditions and equipment. If I you came down here, probably would get better results than mine. We have slight advantage being near the coast but sheltered from winds. Being near a lake also has advantages one being it absorbs suns radiation. Its all relative mate.

Well, maybe if I used my 7-in Mak and DSLR to take far away pictures of me using your C14 HD and ASI290MM. lol.gif
