With Jupiter's disk so tantalizingly large, who could resist? I found an imaging camera in one of my gear boxes, and decided to give it a shot.

Telescope: SkyWatcher 102mm f/10 operating at f/20 with an Olivon 2x Barlow.
Camera: Celestron NexImage CCD planetary imager. coupled to an Asus A8Js laptop
Exposure: 30s .avi video at 25 frames/sec with best 80% used.
Processing: AMCap for capture, RegiStax for video/still conversion and initial processing. Final processing in PS CS3 for levels and curves, unsharp masking.
