Here in southern Arizona we've been dealing with clouds the past few nights, a variation of the "Pineapple Express" (not to be confused with the movie) which drags moisture from the tropics near Hawaii up and over the U.S.  But along about 2am this morning I went out and noticed that the clouds were clearing so I decided I'd pull the cover off the scope and plug the fans in, then check at 4am to see how the skies were.  As luck would have it they were mostly clear, a very high thin band was moving ENE but I figured I had dealt with worse this season.  After checking collimation I started capturing what would end up being three RGB sets which were processed and combined in Winjupos.  I took the best of the individual sets and combined the channels to get a decent Ganymede (although the color is more like Io) and combined it with the WJ image in the appropriate position.

 

Not the best I've done but given the circumstances I'll take it.
