Animations of Jupiter

Jupiter and its Moons as seen on September 5, 2009. The only decent view of got of Jupiter this year due to lousy weather (sob), and my image sequence was cut short by clouds. Click to embiggen. The Moons are a bit hard to see. Ganymede is to the left of Jupiter, and Io and Europa are close together on the right.

This animated GIF (or AVI if you prefer) shows the rotations of the cloud bands nicely. This AVI is overexposed to show the moons movements clearly. Images taken as AVI sequences with Don my 8" Newtonian using a Philips ToUCam, sequences aligned with registax then assembled in The Gimp.
