I was lucky with this image as the seeing conditions deteriorated quickly soon afterwards.

Very nice indeed. And all the better because so few images have been submitted of Jupiter around this opposition (presumably because of low altitude / bad seeing).

Thanks David. I always persevere with the planets, even when low down as the seeing can be surprisingly good at times. I've had some very good seeing occasionally when observing Saturn in recent years. 

Having said that, I just popped out to observe Venus and the seeing here is absolutely terrible, so I might give it a miss tonight.
