Some fairly reasonable seeïng allowed the webcam to take this picture of teh giant planet. As I re-started astronomy after a 20 years break, I'm utterly amazed on how small equipment is now able to display details on our planets, we could only dream of so many years ago. Also big scopes are not necessary for reasonable images. I love the planets as from heavily light-polluted Belgium, this is about as far as it gets !!
