G'day all,

 

I had a stretch of good, consistent seeing last night. These kinds of nights make for a simple filmstrip that you can cross your eyes at to see Jupiter (and Io) in 3D:

Nice trick! I had never seen that approach before, but it works nicely. Once you are 'in' you actually have to make a small effort to get 'out' again.

 

Beautiful photos by the way! One of the benefits of having the planet high in the sky.
