Jupiter through the years as telescope tech improves

You can clearly see the difference between all those years. Like portoguy said on the Reddit post.

 Note that this is not so much the difference in our ability to observe Jupiter, but more the difference in our ability to photograph our observations. In 1879 you would likely get a clearer picture of Jupiter when looking through a telescope, it just couldn’t be photographed in a high quality.

Here is the full image.
