Jupiter planet Video by astronomical telescope

Jupiter is the largest planet in the Solar System where we are,  and has a mass 318 times bigger then Earth and a diameter 11 times larger, so large as to fit into it 1300 planets like ours. If you have 45 kg on Earth, on Jupiter you will have 120 kg.
 It rotates around its axis in only 10 hours, but it takes 12 years to complete one orbit around the Sun.

In the first video below is the beautiful planet Jupiter, with its bands that came through the earth's turbulent atmosphere. In the second clip is a section of the first, but is cropped to see closer the planet.

These images were taken on my birthday, when I hoped to see a clear Jupiter, but it seems that only the next day, on March 4, I shot the most beautiful and clear pictures of this planet through my telescope.
