Here's a 45 minute capture of Io transiting and leaving a shadow on Jupiter last night, along with a derotation of the same source images. Amusingly, there's a fake streak where the shadow of Io is in the originals, even though winjupos recognised the moon and its shadow.

More to come in a separate post since I did a full journey of all the night planets again.

Nice images there - note that WinJupos will produce a "string of pearls" look with moons and their shadows when you perform image derotation.

Thanks. It probably should, but it didn't... I'm guessing it was my processing at fault smirk.gif

I wonder if winjupos will be able to correct derotation with moon transits?

Well, WJ "knows" where the moons and shadows are supposed to be - it could be designed to blank out those areas of the images, leaving the other captures to fill in the gaps. Maybe something to ask the developers?
