My first attempt at photographing Jupiter. Seeing was average. From my location Jupiter was at opposition at about 1:14am and coincided with the redspot transiting. Jupiter starts heading towards the northern hemisphere over the next few years so I don't think Ill revisit it for a while.

For various reason I haven't done much AP over the last year but looking forward to getting back into it once my FSQ106 comes back from repair with Takahashi.

EDIT: I forgot to mention Thanks to Chuck's Astrophotography with your video about making animations using PIPP. Much easier than Photoshop (esp, since I don't have it ;-)
