I watched it visually for an hour with the frac, but the cloud kept on drifting across.

Nice images!


Cheers Chris. I looked at the weather earlier it said cloud coming in. So i didn't think i was going to try. Woke up. Checked the weather again, said cloud coming later. So went mental trying to setup quickly. Never a good thing rushing. But there you go. What with the football stadium LED installed right over my garden not going off until 12:45. facing east lol. Its becoming off putting. later. its right over my neighbour's roof. I am not giving up yet. Need to get on it earlier with a parasol blocking the streetlight. See if I can get any more decent captures before its gone. Then on to Mars for a bit. Its next year i am really planning for. bigger mount bigger scope.

Brilliant images Neil.

Cheers Geoff Finding it increasingly difficult with the stadium light that stays on until Jupiter is over. And the house roof I inevitably end up capturing over as Jupiter gets earlier and earlier

Nicely captured Neil.  Very much like the Ganymede/Io transit in August.


I was thinking the same thing Angie. Though the conditions were somewhat better on that occasion. I may have to revisit that data at some point 

Thanks for the comments
