Jupiter - Europa - 29.11.12 - 10:02pm

This was taken with the DMK camera through the Vixen VMC260L from the Austerfield Observatory. The conditions were good except for an almost full Moon spreading it's light everywhere, polluting an otherwise clear sky.
The intention was to make an animation of the passage of Europa across the face of the planet and for about an hour I took a series of 1 minute videos for that purpose. But in the final processing I found that only two were of use, the rest were not well enough focused, so have been abandoned. So please use your imagination to watch the moon and its shadow pass across the face of Jupiter.
Must do better next time. I've heard that a few times in my school life.
