I was out trying to capture an image of Jupiter at the same time as NASA’s Juno spacecraft was getting closer and closer to Jupiter’s GRS (Great Red Spot).

But unlike the Juno spacecraft, which was only a couple of thousand kilometres away from the planet, I was here on Earth at a distance of approx 700 million kilometres away with lots of turbulent atmosphere between the two of us…but it fun anyway, as there was a transit of the moon Europe traversing across the planets surface :-)

Images taken with a Meade 10inch LX200 telescope at prime focus and a ZWO ASI120MC-S camera with a 2x Barlow lens attached, AVI movie file processed in Registak6 and PS CS4.
