Here is tonight's Jupiter along with Io and I believe Europa, though difficult to see, is directly in front of the planet. This was acquired at 01:30 UT and Jupiter was only about 33 degrees altitude.

C9.25 @ F30
Lumenera LU075
20 fps
stacked best 900 of 2000 frames
seeing: 4-5/10

Happy holiday,

Hello Eric,

That is a nice shot.

Thanks to all for your response.

Robert: The gain was at about 40%.

Paolo: The Astronomik type II filters have built-in IR block. I used them for both this image and for Mars a few days back. My guess is color shift due to low altitude as both were acquired low (Mars at 28 degrees).
