Jupiter, Europa and the Great Red Spot

I used an 8″ SCT on a neq6 mount with a ZWO ASI120MC camera with a 2x Vixen barlow. Processing was done in AutoStakkert, wavelets in Registax 6 and colour balance in photoshop.

This image shows the Great Red Spot with bright Europa in transit, to the left of it.Seeing was slightly above average. This doesn’t take much as I image from my back yard between two rows of terraced houses my own, to the north, and the others terrace, to the south, which is only about 10-12 meters away. I can therefore only image the planets when they get above 30 degrees and clear the roofs.
