Hi all,

Well, couldn't go to bed without processing the RGB series of this beautifull event he he he :)
Even with a warm mirror (had the scope out of the garage) still managed to get a decent image of the double shadow transit, lots of smoke and turbulence from the chimneys all around my spot but still very happy with this image! Honestly I wasn't expecting much, so a good surprise at the end :grin:
As allways, captured with my 300 mm GSO newt., DMK 21 mono, stack of about 1000 frames per channel, processed with Registax 6 (AS!2 wouldn't let me put the two moon's... :() and finished in PS CS5

Best wishes,

Luís

P.S. I still have to process the R series to make a small animation, but time for bed now ;)

Many thanks all for the nice comments! :)

Yes this was really something to see at the eyepiece, just beautifull.

Mert, Yes local turbulence caused by the darn chimneys is a real pain!

Best wishes,

Luís
