Telescope images of Jupiter by telescope. (Registax)

Jupiter is easy to see once spotted in the sky with a telescope, but not always exceeds expectations in terms of image quality of the event if tou want to photograph or film it. This is because for the most part of the everything it depends on the quality of the atmosphere. If  there is atmospheric turbulence, or dust, you will not enjoy a great result. You also need to make sure that the place chosen for observation is not an artificially in a lit area or you are not in town, where both problems described above drastically affect the planet images. So it is very much related to luck that you have that night you've chosen for observation.

Jupiter here, it's seen without its known Great Red Spot. Perhaps if I waited a few hours it would had enter in the scene, knowing that the rotation on its own axis of this beautiful planet takes just 9 hours and 48 minutes. The night before, on March 11, 2014, I managed to synchronize my observation when the Red Spot of the planet was facing us.

Even if spot is not visible here, we can still admire its brown bands surrounding it.

 DSLR images are here.
