Jupiter closest to Earth 2019

Jupiter with Io and Europa at its closest to earth a couple of days after the 2019 opposition, 398 million miles away. The Great Red Spot is still with us and about to rotate out of view on the eastern limb. I felt a little out of practice with my video camera setup after all the work with mirrorless cameras recently. After I adjusted to some minor changes in the Firecapture interface, everything worked well except for a very slight over exposure.

Questar 1350/89mm f/15 telescope, Dakin 2x Barlow lens, IR/UV cut filter and ZWO ASI 224MC planetary video camera. Seeing and Transparency were fair in NW Austin, Texas. Taken 2019-06-13 04:53UT. Exposure 22.84ms and gain 269.

Best 10% of 13126 images 1.5x drizzle stacked in AutoStakkert 3, deconvolved in Lynkeos, and with final crop and exposure adjustments in Photoshop.
