Truly exceptional seeing conditions last week allowed me to capture this view of the ringed planet at F36. TeleVue 3x Barlow combined with William Optics 1.6x Barlow.

WinJUPOS de-rotated composite of the best four drizzle stacks 550 frames each.

Approximately 30 minutes elapsed imaging time, between 11:25pm and 00:03am AEST.

Hexagon jet stream feature is clearly distinguishable around the North Pole and once again faint bright cloud can be detected in the North Equatorial Belt. Dark division within the Crepe Ring is also visible.
