Jupiter and Io shadow 10th Dec

Catching up with my sketches over the Xmas period. Here is one of Io crossing Jupiter. The bands were slightly sharper than in my 3rd Dec viewing; more mottled in the central sections and had a hint of dark brown for the SEB. Frustrating not to be able to pick out Io itself!

Chris,
Nice transit sketch of Io/Jupiter. I wish I could get a half decent night to do some observing (been almost a month).

Chris.

Io is really distinct from the surface. Very nice.

Andre.

hi Chris,
nice sketch.
Io in front of a darker band help to see him directly,
but the scope must have a good contrast & good seeing.
Near to the Planet edge the contrast for that observing will be better.

Bye
Christian
