Description
It's a challenge to picture detail in Jupiter, and then sometimes it isn't. However plagued by bad seeïng, waiting for the exact moment and consistently imaging night by night delivers results. My personal challenge is to get the most out of a smaller diameter scope, in this case a 180mm or 7" Maksutov. I had some success with this picture from our beloved giant planet.
