Bill, et al;

Very good description.  About twice I got a moment of good seeing that
allowed either myself of Lynn Blackwood to see Io as a notch in the
equatorial belt, but only a glimpse.  However, it was a fascinating evening
at 200X in the Nexstar 11 from my backyard at 7th Street and Thunderbird.
Even early in the evening when Jupiter was surrounded by satellites.  I
don't ever remember seeing three moons of Jupiter so close to it all at
once.  A fun night at the eyepiece, even with the seeing like looking
through a swimming pool!
