Description

Captured Jupiter, Io, and Europa on the second night of decent seeing we've had in my neck of the woods in many months. Seeing was predicted to be good for the first time in many months on cleardarksky.com, but ended up average at best.

Imaged with a C8 Evo, custom Siebert 2x barlow, ZWO ADC, and ZWO ASI224MC. Image capture using Firecapture. Wavelet sharpening in Registax.
