Just a quick one from tonight with the 300mm f6 in dob mode on eq tracking platform. Canon g9 720p avi, 9mm ortho, 450 frames stacked R5. Jupiter with Europa shadow.

nice shot looks like you got a shadow of a moon too!

Yes, it was Europa's shadow :smiley: just ran a single movie off at 21:09 GMT. Europa was also on the disc but could not see it either visual or in the movie. The seeing was very steady but with high cloud which killed the histogram, so I had to use 15 fps in 720p mode which does not give as good a result as 640 x 480 30 fps.
