Hi all,

The seeing seemed pretty good this morning as I was imaging Jupiter. It restored my faith in my setup. This is a rough process of only one set of data, I have no idea if it's the best. Happy Thanksgiving to those who celebrate it.

Paul

A little later on Io made a nice transit of shadow and moon. It really popped nicely on the darker limb.

Great image and reference for my ob.

Beautiful shot, Paul. It certainly looks like your rig is in good shape.

I hope you (and all reading) have a happy thanksgiving and, hopefully, good air.
