  3. Just me and my son on the seafront at Seaview in the Isle Of Wight, the sun just cleared a layer of cloud at 7:20, and we watched the remainder of the transit before the next layer of cloud came in. An unforgettable experience. This is taken using a compact camera and a solarscope (http://www.solarscope.org/),
  4. A still from the video of the ISS transiting the Sun at 12:38 today. One of the 13 frames the ISS is visible on captured with my 4" f11 refractor modified for Solar Ha imaging and a DMK21 mono camera running at 60fps High cloud hasn't helped at all but I'm quite pleased with the results. and a stacked image of the ISS using 10 of the 13 images captured the video will be online at Youtube and is currently being processed by their system so the quality will gradually improve and always viewing on the Youtube site is recommended.
  5. Hi all, I was out on the 28th October (Sunday) waiting for the Great Red Spot to appear on Jupiter. As I was watching the GRS move across the disc I noticed what I thought initially was a speck of dust or defect in my eyepiece. My initial panic subsided when it moved and I realised I was watching a moon shadow transit! So I was treated to 2 events that night but it's been annoying me that I didn't know what moon it was. I'm having trouble setting up Stellarium to give me reliable data (I have location, altitude and time set up correctly) for Jovian event predictions. I much prefer a bit of paper anyway and I found this on Sky and Telescope web site; it gives the start, midpoint and end of all Jupiter moon events. Hopefully someone will find it useful if you haven't found it before http://media.skyandtelescope.com/documents/JphenTab2012-2013.pdf According to this it was Europa masquerading as dust!
