Mark Stronge and myself were out observing and Jupiter was looking quite excellent so we fine tuned the focus, got the tracking going and started capturing this transit. Bottom left is Europa which has just been occulted by Jupiter. Io and it's shadow are beginning their transit and Ganymede is far right of the image. The Great Red Spot is visible as is the 2 equatorial cloud bands.
