I shared all my resources here: https://celestia.space/forum/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=20530

But the key is texture enhancement with new filters.

I think this is the best I can do with the 14k base texture. The dark spots and random noises mostly have been eliminated:

For processing the images I use a very powerful PC (and it produced almost 1000GBs of image data), but my video card is more than 5 years old, so Celestia can handle the final product. These full HD png files are between 2 and 3 MBs.

I tried to gain a little more data from the original image:

Actually, it's this texture:
https://www.deviantart.com/master-bit/art/16K-Jupiter-texture-map-695831452

It uses 3 other Jupiter textures (using data from Voyager 1 in 1979, Cassini in 2000, and Hubble in 2015) mixed together with this pattern made from Juno images to make it look more HD:

And to top it all off it uses a photograph of the great red spot taken by Voyager 1:

Thanx, I downloaded it. Maybe I can improve my texture somehow.

I think the texture looked better before you edited the red spot, because in the new one, it sticks out like a sore thumb when it comes to contrast.

That's unfortunately true. The source materials are very different. I'm working on it.

Maybe these are better (it is very hard to enhance and merge two very different textures):

For a comparison, here's an 8k Jupiter texture I made a while back that uses that one texture by Master-Bit on Deviantart, along with some 2019 Hubble data, some Cassini data to make the storms more HD, and actual mosaics of the planet from Juno (processed by Björn Jónsson). I also have moving jet streams as seen from one photo by Juno.
