Hi Everyone, on July 16th I start to following the Transit of Europa over Jupiter. It took around 3 h from start to end.
The animation is made by 25 Frames, which each frame is the result of the stacked of the 10% of 10.000-11.000 frame video.

I used PIPP for centenring and cropping the videos, Autostakkert3 for the stacking, Registax 6 for the wavelets and RGB alignment, and finally PS for rotating the frames and some cosmetic corrections.
Ultimately, the video was made in PIPP with a frame rate of 7 fps.

I really enjoy this transit.

Hope you enjoy it, clear skies.
