Well, maybe not Jupiter itself but after rain last night we got an unusual (for Arizona) dew tonight. Fortunately, the 11" Newtonian optics stayed dry and I got some images as the air seemed reasonably stable. Used the 5x Powermate as Ganymede crossed the big planet.

 

Not completely happy with the processing but there seems to be good detail. 

I'll post a couple of different images and some 60% resized for a more reasonable presentation.

 

I probably over processed but it's always a challenge late at night after a long day. Still a nice way to relax.

These are all 70% stacks of about 10,000 frames.
