I was hoping seeing would cooperate this night when two of Jupiter's moons would be close and one's shadow on the planet.It did, seeing the great results from other imagers I was hoping mine would be good as well. Here it is. Thanks for looking.

Wow! That's a great result Frank - I guess your hopes were filled in a big way. Theres some really fine details in there. Did you capture any later images? At least for me the seeing improved up till 2am then it fell apart.

Thanks Glenn! Yes I Imaged until about 09:00 UT. seeing did the same for me. This was my second session, the first had the best red and blue results but the green was terrible, Otherwise it could have been better. Oh well!

I looked at your image on my smart phone (which did it no justice) and thought, "I gotta get to work and see this on a big monitor."

WOW. You are building up a great library this apparition, Frank.

Thank you Darryl Paul and Stuart! Here is another image,seeing not as good as the earlier sessions did not use Drizzle, For me it seems Driz works better on good data. Thanks again!

Congrats
