Jupiter and Ganymede shadow transit from 2021


Recommended Posts

Sadly, I've not had chance to have a crack at the planets yet this year for one reason or another, so this is an oldie but a goody. This was taken in July 2021 under pretty good seeing. It's my best Jupiter to date. You can see Ganymede casting it's shadow on the body of the planet with Europa to the left and Io to the right. Not forgetting the show stopper that is the Great Red Spot! This was just short of 1000 frames. Very pleased with the result from this beast of a scope!
