Double shadow transit on Jupiter

One great thing about Jupiter is that it has 4 large moons, combine that with the fact that they are in the same plane as the rest of the solar system means that they regularly go in from of the disc and cast a shadow on Jupiter’s surface.

On the 9th March there was a double shadow transit and a transit AND the GRS.

Jamie and I spent a few hours out side taking AVIs of the event. This is the end result.

This is a single image taken near the start, just to gauge focus / quality etc.


Here is all the kit setup with Jamie holding the game controller that controls the scope.
