Hi Anthony,

outstanding stuff 8O grin Good to see your Dragonfly Express back and imaging. 8.5 - 9.5 seeing - wow - I experienced that once in my life and dream of is since then. Jupiter won't be fun on the northern hemisphere for some years, great you share these outstanding images from down under.

Clear skies!

Jupiter and Io this morning

Posted By Oliver Pettenpaul

Hi Jim,

thanks a lot for withstanding the mosquitoes and posting the great image smile Io and its shadow look wondeful, I always enjoy the shadows of the jovian satelites dancing on the gas giant.

Clear skies & best wishes,
Oliver

Jupiter 05/07 Ganymede and Callisto

Posted By Oliver Pettenpaul

Hi Chris,

indeed, very boring wink wink
With this outstanding resolution and wealth of features no side of Jupiter gets boring to me. Outstanding, including the surface features on the moons, of course.
Thanks for sharing!

Best wishes,
Oliver

...and to continue the anticipation:
Closest approach to earth will be on december 19th 2007, apparent diameter only 15.88" but hey, it will reach 64.8° alt that night for my location wink

Clear skies!
