Observed and imaged Ganymede's transit of Jupiter on the night of May 20-21, 2018. Seeing varied from poor to average. Not my cleanest images, but an interesting event to observe and fun to capture.

Imaged with a C8 Evo, custom Siebert 2x barlow, ZWO ADC, and ZWO ASI224MC. Image capture using Firecapture. Stacking in AutoStakkert3. deconvolved in Fitswork4, Color balancing and Wavelet sharpening in Registax.
