Default Full Jupiter rotation movie, pix of Jupiter, its moons, and Uranusand Neptune

The following URL was posted in Yahoo's sct-user group:

http://www.damianpeach.com/barbados10.htm

The pictures and the movie appear to have been shot in
orbit around Jupiter but were, in fact, taken from Earth,
specifically the Barbados.

Some of the pictures clearly out-NASA NASA.

As another member of sct-user commented, "The video is
amazing. It shows nearly a full rotation - maybe 9 hours
worth, which means the frames near the start and end were
taken with Jupiter far from high in the sky."

The photographer, Damian Peach of the UK, produces some
of the most incredible astro-imagery I've ever seen. His
home page is http://www.damianpeach.com/ where you can
find more pictures and details of his observatories and
equipment.

Clearly Damian has done an outstanding job and deserves all the
accolades. The detail shown is incrediable.

For Thad to say that "Some of the pictures clearly out-NASA NASA." is
just bovone excrement.

While I'm sure that NASA can do anything with a C14 and image stacking
software that an amateur astronomer can, it _is_ true those images are
more detailed than some earlier ones from the Hubble Space Telescope,
and they don't even compare too badly with some from the Pioneer and
Voyager space probes.

It's not as if he went further to draw conclusions about NASA funding,
or other politics. So I see no reason to be concerned about a little
hyperbole.
