Jupiter from Yesterday Night

I used a 9.25 inch telescope and a ZWO ASI224MC astrophotography camera to capture this image of Jupiter. The planet is 588 million kilometers from our Earth.
Jupiter rotates once every 10 hours which is very fast considering it is larger than all the other planets combined. Here we see the other side of Jupiter without the Great Red Spot. This is the opposite side to what we previously saw in the first Jupiter in this series.
