Weather forecast said cloudy but an unexpected clear sky for a couple hours..!!!

The seeing just got better and better BUT then the clouds rolled in just as it was getting good !!!

The last run was the best and probably my best image of Jupiter throughout the whole season ( so far )

Agree with Simon, the last one is stunning, and the I'd still give my right arm for the second.   Blooming clouds have a lot to answer for, but that really is nice going Mike and a great example of how much difference improving conditions can bring over a short period.

Thanks everyone :-) just wished the clouds hadn't rolled in ,oh well can't have everything I suppose LOL

The detail in the final image looks amazing. 

What scope and camera are you using?

If someone had said ten years ago that amateurs would be taking pics of this quality they would have been laughed out of the room. Now you and several others here are doing just that.

Fine images, really detailed.

Sent from my iPhone so excuse the typos!
