I got lucky on May 27th with Io transiting across Jupiter along with the GRS. This is 23 runs put together to form about 1 hour and 45 minutes of timelapse data.

Sadly living at a latitude of 45 degrees, Jupiter only gets to a maximum height of 22 degrees above the horizon. This makes seeing a bit difficult, but I feel it was pretty good that night, and I was able to pull out a fair amount of detail.
