Jupiter in 2016

It was very clear last night, yet the full Moon made the sky very bright.
However it was a great opportunity to collect some new image-data of Jupiter, with the Great Red Spot on display:

I'd not used my modified SPC880 webcam for a long time, so it took me a little while to remember how to capture its RAW-mode data, and I also had to clean some dust-specks off its tiny sensor. But once I'd sorted this, I was able to process my images in record time using AutoStakkert! (as suggested by Damian Peach) and IRIS - much quicker than RegiStax!
