Two images of Jupiter. The one above is the result of three stacked images from January 29. 16:22 UT. The great red spot is seen at the right rim of the planet - also the two moons Ganymede an Io can be seen at lower right. Much more detail is revealed in this image.

The second image is from the same day - but is made from only one of the three frames.

Enlarged version of stacked image.
