Io shadow transit - animated

Recommended Posts

Hello :) 

This is an animation of Io's shadow transit , i like how it looks like Jupiter's red spot is an eye following the moon's movement :p 

Shot with a 5" reflector and an ASI 120 MC - color cam.

Hope you like it :)

Brilliant, just got in from watching it and was able to use this to show my wife what I'd been up to! Didn't spot the GRS, may have stopped too soon/didn't know that I should have been looking out for it as well, but Io's shadow was pretty sharp... Very chuffed for my second ever excursion, and this animation has helped me confirm what I was viewing, so thank you!
