Jupiter is back 
After a long gap, I have made a reasonable picture of Jupiter again, and with the Galilean satellite Europa, too. I have had a few tries recently but the weather here has been pretty bad and even when it was clear it was very windy, leading to very bad astronomical seeing.
I captured this one on the night of 17 September, actually it was 18 September by the time Jupiter was high enough. I captured 4000 frames and stacked 1200 of them in Registax 5, with some final finishing in The Gimp.

This picture was captured using my Orion Optics SPX 250 Newtonian telescope on my new mount, a Losmandy GM-8, of which more later.
