Jupiter's Great Red Spot

My first Jupiter of the season, fair to good seeing, with Jupiter about 30 deg above the horizon. I was hoping to catch the Moon later in the morning. With clouds forecast to roll in around 3AM, I decided to capture some data from the big planets instead. Taken 2020-06-18 06:25 UT from Austin, Texas. Questar 1350/89mm telescope with Daken 2x barlow, UV/IR cut filter, ADC, and ZWO ASI224MC planetary video camera.

Exposed 17.1 ms at gain 299. Best 10% of 2430 frames stacked in Autostakkert! 3, deconvolved in Lynkeos, with final crop, exposure, and white balance in Photoshop. Noise reduction in Topaz DeNoise AI.
