Jupiter, GRS and Europa – 13th May

This image of Jupiter, featuring the GRS at mid-transit and Europa on the left which had just finished tranist, was captured on Wednesday morning, 13th May in average seeing.

Jupiter was still at a reasonably low 49° altitude when this shot was taken (first of the session), but unfortunately the seeing only got worse with altitude and by 5am I’d packed up.

The GRS is still quite pale compared to previous years, but the dark centre and dark ring can still be seen.

The seeing has turned bad here as the wind has picked up, so looks like no imaging for a few days.

Thanks for looking.
