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."

Jupiter imaged by Manos Kardasis from Greece, on November 6 & 7 2010. Manos writes: "I took advantage of the rare good seeing conditions over Greece in the latest days to do a Hi-Res Strip Map. Unfortunately on the 6th of Nov. the seeing got worst after midnight so I took the risk among clouds to fill the bad parts in the following night."
