Hi all. I took this animation on 06/01/24. It is 12 videos taken ever 72 minutes. The file was just too big to post directly here. I got it down to 500kb but anything smaller than that made it tiny. I hope the links work. Details.
Cpc 1100/X-Cel 2x barlow

Each image is best 27% of 8000 frames. 
Seeing was decent. Taken from the Sugarloaf car park. I did see a few other astronomers. I said hello to one guy. I also saw a couple of cars that looked like they maybe up to no good!

Great work Neil.

The reddit one works, the FB one doesn't, you probably need to make the video public.

Michael.

Hello Neil. That's a sensational video of Jupiter!
Thank you. Much applause for it.
When you are ready, could you tell us which moon is which? I'm guessing Ganymede, that is beginning to transit Jupiter, Io and Europa.
And I'm glad you had other amateur astronomers with you.
We once had crazy drivers whizzing around the Sugarloaf car park, and we had many thousands euros worth of telescope equipment. I give you this friendly warning as one who cares for your well-being.

But good work anyway from Aubrey. Thumbs up!

Thanks Aubrey. I cant believe I didnt put up the moon! You are spot on with Ganymede. It is just beginning its transit. My laptop cut out so I couldn't get anymore of the transit. :(
From left to right: Europa, Ganymede and Io to the right coming into view. I think my collimation is slightly out..
I was told on Cloudy Nights that it does not matter if I image Jupiter from a dark sky or not as it is so bright. I disagreed as I have not gotten such clear images of its moons before. One person said that I shouldn't really be disagreeing with a person with 12 years experience of planetary imaging. Maybe they are correct but that is simply not my experience with Jupiter. I wil test this when Saturn gets higher later this year.
I was up in the Sugarloaf car park last week to image Betelgeuse and there were a few dodgy cars. One pulled right up beside me which was enough to make me leave. I got a decent image of the star anyway which ill put up. Thanks again Aubrey.
