2 2x barlow lenses

This is the best image of Jupiter I have ever managed. Staying up into the early hours really paid off as the atmosphere was relatively calm unlike earlier in the evening. I tried my luck with 2 2x barlow lenses and the scope coped admirably. I like this image because i can start to pick out some details in the clouds where as with other images i could only manage 2 poorly defined bands of dark cloud.
