After a long time I've been able to capture Jupiter in colour and it looks like I caught the GRS!

There were some odd settings in the "filter" of my Philips SPC900 that were causing the loss of detail and colour.  It's a small picture and lacking of detail, this certainly doesn't make it a jaw-dropping picture but I'm quite happy with it and wanted to share :)

Great image, Rihard and thank you for sharing your art work. I was also out tonight viewing Jupiter's GRS transit. I really phenomenal show and an object which appears to becoming more and more prominent as the weeks drip by.

Nice image Rihard! As you say a larger barlow next time should bring out the detail.

Very nice image. Before I bought the X5 Powermate I used to stack my X2 and X3 Barlows to get a nice large image of Jupiter with details.

So don't be afraid to stretch the SW200P over the limits this set up is great.

Good work
