Image Details:

Grateful to the Universe for clear Skies last night when Jupiter was at opposition, can't complain about poor seeing, atleast I saw it, imaged it and happy to share it.
There's never a dull moment when you're observing(or imaging) Jupiter, saw Europa emerge and a few minutes later Io disappeared.
With 121GB data and some 28 AVI's to process, I will share the moments of Europa & Io's appearance & disappearances, in time.
