This is an animation of Jupiter's rotation from the morning of the 22nd of November. You can see the Great Red Spot (GRS) moving across the surface, as well as Io and its shadow. I had superb seeing that evening, and so glad I took the time to image for a few hours.Some of the images were processed in Registax, others AS!2. My mount was not exactly aligned, and I think that is what has caused the "rings" on the edges, especially to the left of the images, so I need to work on that.create a gif here
