Description

After finishing with Venus the previous evening, I refined the Advanced VX's alignment so the go-to was precise enough to center any target in an eyepiece. Doing so made Jupiter easy to find during the day. Started imaging about half an hour after sunrise. The blue channel was extremely challenging because of the low contrast between the planet and sky.

Notes:
Ganymede is transiting over the North Temperate Zone.
The Great Red Spot is setting.
