Thank you for supporting this wiki project
The image is the result of taking a number of movie sequences, sorting and stacking the frames held within each sequence and combining all of these into a final result.

Here, four 90s red filtered mono images were combined with two 90s green filtered images and two 90s blues to produce a final RGB colour result.

As Jupiter is a fast rotator, spinning once on its axis in less than 10 hours, an imaging period of this length would normally result in a blurred RGB. However, using the wonderful WinJupos software it is possible to derotate each result back to a common time.

The net result is a final RGB that looks sharp, detailed and unblurred by Jupiterís rapid rotation.
