These contests are getting tough to vote on! It's gtting murder trying to decide who to vote for. But that is truly a fine Jupiter (and Ganymede!) image.

Thanks people. Thank you also to the other competitors, that cluster had me worried. That Sketch had a friend of mine thinking it was a photographic image. Tough competition

Thanks once again.

WOW! Great Jupe! I honestly didn't think you could get a shot like that with a C9. And Ganymede is a nice sphere!
Dollar for dollar that's about a million times better than the Hubble

Congrats on a fine pic!

Thanks so much for the great compliments. Scott, you can and do get great images from a C9.25. Having a good camera helps and hours at the laptop make for needed experience.

Thanks

Paul
