I set up my LX-200 scope to image Saturn later that night, but decided to take some shots of Jupiter before going to bed. I'm glad I did, as I happened to photograph it just as the Great Red Spot was appearing. I wish I had been more scientific with the timing of my photographs, but I'm still really happy with the end result.
