I have only now had a comprehensive look through the videos taken last night. I had noticed that the seeing degraded over the course of the evening. Here's a sharpened pic centred on a time before the shadow transit began. Io is clear as a bell, frozen in this image above the north equatorial belt. IR imaging is fantastic - I can't quite believe how much less affected these longer wavelengths are!
