    If you love Jupiter as much as I do these pics from the NASA Juno mission will be delighting you :)

    What's interesting is that they make the image data available for the general public to decode and create images from. The main Juno site is here: Mission Juno

    Some of the latest images are amazing too!

    Wow, nice stuff on that site! Good cloudy nights (and days and nights and days...) stuff. Honestly, some of those spots on Jupiter have looked clearer than Christchurch at times over the last week :)

    Hello everyone, just thought I would share my 1st attempt at imaging Jupiter a couple of months back.
    Equipment: Skywatcher 100ED with a ZWO174MM camera. Next step is to use my filter wheel to get colour.
    Firecapture (for video capture), Autostakkert (stacking) and Registax (sharpening).
