Three color composites of the planet Jupiter. Note the prominent equatorial bands. There are contrast differences between the images and the second and third images are sharper due to better atmospheric seeing. In the third image, the Great Red Spot is visible in the middle of the planet in the bottom equatorial band (look closely, it isn't easy to see but it is there).
