I missed the shadow but by the time I slapped in the 10mm Plossl with a #15 yellow filter threaded into the bottom of it , I was able to catch the brightening of Io sitting in the SEB about to come off the limb . And there was the GRS too ! I watched as the pimple of Io started to come to a head and pop . The seeing was no less that excellent and at 91x with an exit pupil of .66mm , this is no doubt the best imagery of Jupiter I've seen through my classic little 60 so far .
Just wishing I would have gotten out a little earlier .
Anyway , thanks for the heads up . I may not have gotten out with it if I'd missed the thread .
This old classic is a true gem !
