Jupiter 5-16-2017

The 125mm MAK came through again last night with some fine images of Jupiter showing a decent amount of detail for such a small instrument!

The spot like object just above the center of the disk is a blue festoon, and others can be seen in the same belt. Just below it, in the brown belt, a string of white ovals can be seen.  Below is the uncropped image for reference:

The image is a stack of 350/500 avi frames, stacked and wavelet processed in Registax 6. Color correction was performed in Nebulosity 4.
