Just got back from France where we had some very nice views of Jupiter through an excellent Celestron 100ED.

Ganymede was easily seen transiting the Jovian disk.

Dweller,

An excellent observation of Jupiter. The transit of Ganymede must have been fun to watch. Thank you for sharing it with us all.

Carlos
