Jupiter with Ganymede Eclipse

Main site

This was night 4 of 4 and the current longest consecutive stretch of nights in a row.  I set out to capture Io emerging from transit at nearly the same time as a eclipse of Ganymede.  

One of the best RGBs that started the night off before the seeing really fell apart. (click image for high res)

Here is the animation, which consists of 57 sub images.  Each frame is a separate 10s capture at 50fps.  I tried to set the frame rate in the animation at 25ms.  The capture duration is from 05:36 UT to 05:51 UT.
