Last night it was painful.... I was getting attacked by mosquitoes (lots of them) while taking this...

It is first light for this webcam, so I'm still playing around with settings while trying to shoot and avoid loosing much blood in the process...

I took a combination of 400 frames (AVI file), and combined them with Registax. Enhanced some detail with Photoshop.

Skies are hot, humid & hazy in South Florida...

Comments are always welcome!

Clear dark skies!

Thank you for posting your excellent first light image of Jupiter using your new webcam. You have captured much detail across the jovian disk. I note ovals over the South Temperate Belt (STB) and Zone (STZ), South Tropical Zone (STrZ) condensation (dark blotch), SEB and NEB detail, a dark barge along the northern border of the NEB and detail within the North Polar Region (NPR). Please keep up the excellent work and try to not lose too much blood to the Florida state bird (The Mosquito!). I too live and observe in South Florida.

The best of luck in future imaging.
