spotted three shadows (Mississauga)

We got them! The three shadows on Jupiter. Tony and I were very happy. Cheers!

The faint dot top-left of the planet is the moon Europa. The shadows, left to right, are Europa's, Callisto's, and Io's. Callisto is above Europa's shadow. Also, Io is just barely visible to the right of Callisto's shadow!

Point Grey Chameleon colour camera, Celestron CGEM 11, manually focused, FlyCap software, Celestron mount roughly polar aligned. Image produced from AVI clip with only 34 frames. Stacked in Registax 6. Final processing in Ps CC 2014.
