Last night I was taking some shots of Jupiter, as it has taken a very good viewing position from Earth.
I took this shot with my Canon Optura Xi with its 36x zoom setting. Not the greatest and most clear you can find, but for me a very good achievement. If you zoom in on the picture you can make out the Southern Equatorial Belt. The Northern Equatorial Belt vanished for some reason in the last year.
