I was hoping for decent seeing knowing Io would be close to it's shadow in transit. Seeing was good for the most part this night. Happy with the result. Thanks for looking.

Thank you Trevor,Brian,Stuart,and Tim. To bad Tim Io is not in transit in the band north or south of the SEB,it would be an even more contrasting against the lighter backround! Thanks again!
