Image Details:

It is monsoon time, and though there hasn't been much of rains in Delhi but the clouds are always in transit. Catching Jupiter with the GRS is always a must in planetary season, this being my first one for the year.
Ganymede was transiting which made the image more interesting, the largest Planet with the largest moon of our solar system.
The details on Ganymede surprised me, as the weather was very turbulent, not ideal for planetary.

Looking forward to imaging more features of Jupiter, each year there's so much to observe and watch in awe of this Gas Giant.

Clear Skies!
