Probably the finest ground based image of Jupiter, ever. Damian writes: "Jupiter with the GRS, Ganymede and Io. The Jupiter is from Sep 12th while the moon images were taken, aligned and processed seperately and positioned for aesthetic value. Ganymede clearly shows the brilliant Osiris ray crater region at top while Marius and Galileo regio are also nicely visible. Ganymede was 1.84" in apparent diameter - larger than in most years."
