You can say that Jupiter is close to opposition - Io covers almost all of its own shadow!

Seeing was pretty awful during the capture, despite very good forecast. Still, some of the frames show more or less decent detail level. Didn't want to just throw away 100Gb of data!

33 captures 60 seconds each. On few frames with the worst seeing I had to apply more sharpening than I'd like to, but otherwise this movie would be hard to look at because of a blurred frames.

This is a first light for my new ASI224MC and ADC. Both awesome pieces of equipment!

Also did few 5 minute runs, hope they will show a bit more detail or at least will be less noisy!
