This is a beautiful image showing Jupiter and the 300 year old storm known as the Great Red Spot. 2 of Jupiter's many moons are visible, Io to the left and Europa to the right. This is the best image I have seen taken with an ETX105mm and undoubtedly Kevin's technique is perfect to capture such a great shot.
