Io occulting Ganymede animation Image 2014/11/26(UT)

"We imaged Jupiter using the ir742nm filter on 26th November 2014 with the
planet only 36 above the horizon employing 10 x 50 second consecutive

Due to the rapid movement of the moons with regard to each other we could
only focus at the very start of the first capture and consequently focus
became "soft"

as the sequence progressed, although this really only affected the planet
disk itself.

Here is a "close-up" view of the moons by themselves at 375% of the capture

All 10 avi's were used and the animation reverses upon itself and is looped
to play continuously.

The first frame was taken at 18:59:26 and the last at 18:37:45 on 26th
