Dear Efrain

Thank you for sharing this beautiful capture of the Jupiter Triple Satellite Shadow Transit. You have also provided us all with a great sequential progression over several hours. I viewed it only for a couple minutes in my 10.1 inch Dobsonian telescope at 120 X through brief cloud breaks. I was stunned but more so to allow a few patrons to see it front of a late night store just before the 11 PM hour PST- as my view was nearly identical to your 6:45 UT image at bottom. I also watched a triple shadow transit back in about 2004 through a local star party event that I helped to provide with a 12 inch Dobsonian.

So I am sharing your image with others today to show them what they missed viewing it live.

Could you possibly indicate what telescope and camera that you used for these images?

Thanks again for any further info,
