Iceman, based in Gosford, Australia has posted an animation of Jupiter in the Bad Astronomy and Universe Today Forum. It was captured with The Imaging Source DMK 21AF04.

He writes:

Here's the results of my very first RGB image with the DMK 21AF04, taken on Friday night in fluctuating 4-6/10 seeing. I took 11 avi's in total, but only managed to salvage 5 images due to the fluctuating seeing.


Iceman notes that Ganymede is in the shot, transiting the planet (shown as the blot) at the bottom of the image. Furthermore, some markings can be seen even during transit.
