Jupiter This Week

Lots of clear weather here in Cleveland this week, but seeing/atmospheric steadiness hasn't been good enough to get clear images of Jupiter. I pulled out the old mirror fan system and built a new one this week. The new fan arrangement really works well and I shouldn't need to tinker with it for a while.

Here are a couple pics of Jupiter, from Saturday night:

and from Tuesday night:

Interesting to see how the storm in the dark belt has changed over the course of a few days.
