Quick video captures of Jupiter by telescope.

Planet Jupiter.
As a novelty for me tonight was that I first saw the great red spot on the planet.

You may be wondering where is one of the four Galilean satellites. Io is in front of the planet and therefore is not visible, but on the fourth image can be located on planet's disc as a dark point on the left, near the edge.

Images are upside down, as seen through the telescope, and are simple video captures unprocessed. Expected to insert them in Registax for more details of the images to be seen.

We can see here that is outer atmosphere which is is visibly separated into several bands at different latitudes, resulting in turbulence and storms along their interacting boundaries. An important result is the Great Red Spot, a giant storm that is known to exist at least from the 17th century, when it was first seen through the telescope.
