What a great image!  The exremely nicely captured moons really give it a feeling of greater depth helped out by the GRS and oval BA which are very nicely placed.

Nice.  I watched through a 150mm Bosma mak and some high clouds, and it didn't look anywhere that nice, but it was my first transit watch, so still very enjoyable.  I couldn't see Io until it broke the limb, so your photo is nice for that as well.

Thanks for sharing.

I wanted to capture that so bad but the weather where I am did not cooperate.

Wonderful image, Joe.  Io really looks like a 3-D object here, and the shadows are super sharp.  I saw the shadow transit last night in the eyepiece, but Jupiter was like jelly, so no imaging.

Outstanding detail! Looks like those eddies in front of Oval BA are starting to interact with the GRS…

Was showing this to my wife as evidence of why I need a C14.  She was not convinced (yet). 

 

Meanwhile, my 2-yr-old daughter chimes in "that's a smiley face, see, 2 eyes".  Now I can't unsee it.  tongue2.gif

 

It's more apparent in this tilted view from my humble c9.25:

i came up with this scenario if there were 2 transit shadows over 2 white ovals in the northern eq band

I saw a 4 moon transit close to opposition in the next year or two but its only for euroup If I were  filthy rich i would pack up and go and just fill a 1 t external drive taking 1 120sec ser file every few minutes
