By Jove!

I took this using a normal point-and-click camera held up to the eyepiece of my telescope last night. No red spot on Jupiter, that would have appeared around midnight (Jupiter rotates completely in 10 hours – crazily fast) but you can see bands of cloud quite clearly. It might have been a clearer picture but for the thin cloud (on our planet) and condensation that formed and reformed every few minutes on the telescope.
