Jupiter 1 - First Jupiter Stack

I've finally managed to get a half decent shot of the gas giant Jupiter. It's an alright shot I think, given the circumstances. I was at home, in the middle of the city when I took the video for the stack. It will be interesting to see the difference between a light polluted photo and one taken in good seeing conditions.

Still, it can only get better from here.
