Some fine detail visible on the "quiet" side of Jupiter, in a moment of good seeing last night.

Thanks Paul and Tim! Last night was weird. Seeing started out so bad I nearly quit. It looked like a very fast jitter from the atmosphere. But then it settled down as Jupiter reached 80 degrees elevation, when I got this image. After that it went bad again. Two hours of data for several images but only one keeper.

Thanks FOC. Had to sort through 110 GB to find it though.
