Jupiter and the Great Red Spot.

Jupiter, is a planet that constantly changes its appearance showing different whenever you turn the telescope toward it therefore fascinate us every time observing it because its belts never have rest by their variations in size.

The Great Red Spot is visible discrete on the surface. These are the "lucky pictures" taken from a video taken with the camera attached to the telescope. I have chosen these images armed with great patience and attention.

With its satellites, 63 in number, Jupiter forms a kind of mini solar system.

In the images below, three of Jupiter's moons are nicely organized in bottom right: Callisto, Io and Europa.
