Tonight's Jupiter / Ganymede shadow transit with GRS. I quite like this one. Taken at near max elevation of 82 degrees.

Skywatcher 300PDS 12" F5 Newtonian with Svbony barlow and SV305, modified NEQ6 Pro.

Captured in Sharpcap, stacked in Autostakkert, sharpening and levels in PS.

I think you'll enjoy the results from toning down the sharpening just a bit.  It's a bit harsh as processed.  Definitely lots of details but they will persist even with less sharpening.

Excellent work, lots of detail there without going over the top (imho), even on Ganymede :). Great colour cast also.

Thanks all.

It's blowing at 65km/h tonight so no imaging from me. Time to catch up on older data.
