Pretty good night for imaging, but too breezy for the CGEM DX/C14 (frequent theme of this summer). After imaging Saturn the first time, I saw that Ganymede would briefly reappear before falling into Jupiter's shadow, so I returned with the ASI224MC to catch it in action. After catching that, I returned to Saturn to take advantage of the higher altitude.

Link to the animation of Ganymede. Io and Callisto were also close enough for me to include them.

A bit freaky how Ganymede appears only to disappear! It reminds me of when I was recently startled by Io when it emerged from Jupiter's shadow while I was imaging…about as much as a moon of another planet can startle a person, anyway. Even freakier was the shadow of one moon on another someone once posted.

That pesky wind still plaguing planetary folk around the world!

 

Nice images Ethan.
