Jupiter with Great Red Spot on 2nd May



Lisburn, County Antrim

Celestron C8 SCT on a Skywatcher HEQ5PRO Synscan Mount. A ZWO 290MM CMOS Camera imaging through Baader LRGB filters and a x2 Barlow lens.

A period of settled weather here allowed, at long last, some nice seeing conditions. On the 2nd May I turned my equipment onto Jupiter shining brightly near Spica and captured this image of the giant planet. As a bonus the Great Red Spot was in transit!
