My second attempt at Jupiter. Last time I used my Canon 450D DSLR, this time I used my ZWO ASI120MC colour CMOS camera. This image is the best 250 of 5000 frames of video captured. Although the sky looked clear the seeing conditions were dreadful. I really think it's a matter of luck with Jupiter that you manage to grab a frame or two when the sky stops "bubbling" briefly. I'm really keen to improve on my planetary imaging, so if anyone has any advice please let me know.
