Jupiter's Opposition with Earth on October 28th

The Jupiter and Europa image was captured using DMK21AU04 monochrome camera and filters (RGBL). The images were captured using IC Capture and processed with Registax 6. Instrument used C8 f/25.       fps: 30, 45secs. Seeing 4/10

What is striking in this combined image is the complexity of the SEB texture, with a conspicuous darker streak extending horizontally from the GRS (not visible), and the dark swirls next to the STropZ.

See reference guide for Jupiter surface nomenclature.
