On my first day out with my new ZWO ADC and DIY electric focuser, I was lucky to catch Europa's shadow crossing Jupiter. Io and Europa are visible, and Europa's shadow moves across the face of the planet.

Each frame was stacked from 2 minutes of data.

Here's an annotated frame, with some contrast adjustment.
