Jupiter and Io 11-22-12 in Good Seeing
      #5534695 - 11/23/12 12:57 AM Attachment (225 downloads)

Here's my Thanksgiving day Jupiter image. It was the first night of good seeing we've had in about two months. Boy has Jupiter grown since then. When I first put my 18mm eyepiece in and saw the GRS and Io transit in place, my jaw about dropped. I can say it was the best view I have ever seen...so 3 dimensional looking to see Io popping out in front of Jupiter. It will be a Thanksgiving morning to remember.

I had a hard time putting the eyepiece away but was rewarded with some great imaging time. I've been traveling all day so this was edited on my laptop in the car...but I think it turned out well.

This was taken at 8:24UT with the C14 flea3.

Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving. It's been a tough year for me but I still have plenty to be thankful for! Thanks for looking

Sure is one of the best (ground based) images of Jupiter I've seen.

Yea, that's an incredible image. Even the moon is circular. Look at all that detail in the NEB. The NTB and SEB, too. Hey-Zeus!
