Richard S. Wright Jr. captured this photo on September 3rd, 2011 at 3:00 in the morning just as the shadow of Io (also seen to the left of Jupiter) was hitting the GRS.
“We had an unusually good night forecast for Central Florida, and I used Gas Giants (an iPhone app) to see if the GRS would be visible that night. To my surprise, I saw that Io would be casting a shadow across as well. I knew I had to try and capture it.”
Richard used the following equipments and specs:
Paramount MX mount
Orion 190mm f/5.3 Mak-Newt
Teleview 2X barlow
Imaging Source Firewire video camera w/IR filter.
Astro IIDC, Photoshop, TheSkyX Pro
