About this image

Taken in rapidly deteriorating seeing and at a low angle just clearing neighbour's trees, this is the best of around 75seconds worth of two short videos before it became impossible to record any worthwhile detail.   If only we had the height of Jupiter on the other side of the world - or even nearer the Equator on this side!
