The weather was nice and clear, with unfortunate Sahara dust problems. This presented some focusing issues. I included the test focus images in the animation so that it would appear less janky. Seeing was generally good, but i had a bit of eye problems and had a rough time focusing. I hope the results look nice. I will be posting the link as the animation is 13mb. The placement of the moons and shadow really highlighted the amazing 3D view that  Jupiter presents! The imaging starts around 60 degrees up and you can see the difference at close to zenith

Amazing captures all around but this animation is really spectacular. Thank you for sharing it with the CN community.

That's a great animation, Amrit! I love it when one of these is long enough that you can see the cloud bands move at different speeds!

Great images but take note of the partial diffraction rings around the moon shadows.  They are telling you that you could still tweak the collimation a bit.

I will have to look into it. I thought it was an artifact from the shadow moving I the 2 mins of capture
