Hi:
I took the following at around 9 ut in good seeing conditions with a dbk 618 and a 9.25 cpc early Thursday morning.
It shows Europa's shadow and Europa ( although it is very light colored and takes some time to pick out). Sorry for the angle of the picture but I was in a hurry. I tried rotating in paint shop pro, but when I did this, I lost detail in the picture.

I took this one a little later at around 9:30 UT when my conditions where a little better. No Europa shadow but Europa is on the face -(if you can find it). I processed this one differently. I believe I have been setting my gamma to low at 50. I adjusted for it here. Anyone with a dbk 618 or dfk care to comment on gamma settings?
Thanks for viewing.

One more processing of data from the same morning. I think the detail on this one is a little better.

Very nice! I think I like the color in the last one and the levels in the second one.

Thanks Mike and Darryl. Slowly improving in the hobby.
I plan on maximizing my color camera experience and maybe getting brave enough for a monochrome one day.
