IO shadow transit, with twin Barges and possible third Barge near centered Shadow! 

 

Used 4 eyepieces to 4.8 Nagler, Whew! 

 

Was 3:12 AM here midwest time. A beauty indeed

 

Shadow of course obvious, too late a view to catch IO emerging onto edge of Jupiter, missed that.

 

Recheck believe I had a yellow filter on the 4.8 Televue. All excellent looks tho fog banks and close moon. Stunning!

 

XT10

7mm, 6mm, 5mm orthos, best tho was sky permitted 4.8mm Nagler

 

Might still catch some view right Now!

Always amazed me the Jupiter moons showed so well in just those Binoculars! 

 

Many of us fail to scan the sky with binoculars. Alot there Indeed! 

 

Excellent!
