For several months, the French astronomy society Saint-Michel, Village du Ciel has been testing the DMK 41AU02.AS astronomy camera.

For their latest report, the camera has landed in the hands of Guillaume Bertrand, a passionate astro-photographer and IT specialist. He has deployed the camera on Jupiter.

Below is one of the images, which he submitted to The Imaging Source:

He commentates the photo with (translated from French):

The Great Red Spot is very visible on all three photos, as well as Oval BA (Red Spot Jr), which unfortunately has just passed the GRS. In the equatorial region, you can see some festoons.

If you are able to read the French, please take a look at the report on the society's web site.

A great thanks goes out to Guillaume for his detailed work.
