Jupiter and the Moon on January the 6th, 2012

For once a calm atmosphere allowed me to do some decent imaging in a long time. This will probably my last Jupiter of the season, the planet is rapidly getting smaller now. Taken around 18.00 UT on January, 6th. DMK 21AU618.AS used and Astronomik RGB filters. This was one of my first image sessions with filters. The seeing also allowed me to do some moon shots and capture Schroter's Valley and others.
