Jupiter … in all its glory. Shot last week under good conditions, this season I seem to be able to keep besting myself by some careful tweaking of the planetary telescope.
As an astrophotographer, I’m always chasing the Great Red Spot, but the other side is pretty magnificent also … I was able to get into some detail on the cloud bands. It’s hard to imagine I can do much better with my gear and location!
