Before I ask anything, WOW, nice work. You had a long night.

I'm curious about the first image, were the conditions better then? It seems much clearer, is that just my eye?

Thanks for sharing your images!

Hi Jim,

I did a little 3-D imaging with your pictures, and for what it's worth the white equatorial band appears to be floating on top of everything else, and the red spot looks slightly sunken in. The images are just slightly too far rotated with respect to each other for my eyes though. If you have some other pictures that have less incremental rotation, it might show the effect better.


Insiring shots !

Hi Jim,

Great images! I wish that I just had one as good as any of those.

Clear skies,
