Europa and Io transit, 25 May
« on: May 27, 2017, 11:48:57 AM »
Followed the transit of Europa and Io early evening, 25 May.  Seeing was only fair, but with moments of smoother air.  I watched the transit while imaging it figuring I would get a few usable AVIs.  Results were most surprising. Reduced image scale and the magic of AutoStakkert produced a fascinating series of images documenting the transit.  Unfortunately, clouds moved in before Io's shadow reached Jupiter's western limb.  Rewarding all the same.  3000 frame AVIs processed with AutoStakkert and RegiStax wavelets.  Planetary imaging rocks!
