The seeing was super steady last night, Jupiter put on a great display with GRS and excellent detail in the belts.

This image is a stack of approx 800 frames, equip Zwo120mc and 14'' newt.

Excellent! Seeing here was pretty good too, with all the detail in your image visible at x190 and x270 (above my normal mag for Jupiter, but the seeing allowed it.... At x270, a bit of marking detail was visible on Ganymede as well, which was a bonus. I was going to get the camera out, but J had moved around too far to the SW to be comfortable with my equatorial mount.

Great image Debo, and a very useful reference for all of us observing last night at a similar time. I had good seeing too, although in the 4” I was stuck down just below x150 at best. The detail visible was the best I’ve seen this apparition, really nice. GRS looked very orange, as in your image.

Great image, the photo you took helps me to confirm what I saw and sketched last night! We must of observed at a similar time! Always good to get confirmation.

I was using my Baader Zoom lastnight, as I was trying filters for the first time. The mag I was around was x150-x169. Telescoped used was my Skylight 4" F15.
