Registax processing Jupiter through a telescope. Io, Ganymede Conjunction.

In these images, the planet Jupiter has the Red Spot facing us. I stayed for observations so long as to be able to see the evolution of the planet's rotation. In the first image, the spot is at right and in is the last images is on the left. Applying a sharp dyadic and increasing image contrast in Registax image results, we see that the Red Spot is really red, making it distinct and visually special on the surface (sixth picture).

In the same night, the two Jupiter's moons Io and Ganymede met from our observational perspective. And this moment was caught in these pictures. In the last image, the two moons were far apart from each other, but in the first images is noted that there is like only one, and that is because between 10:50 p.m. and 10:56 p.m., Io went in front of Ganymede's disk in just 6 minutes.
