Awesome Images of Io transiting Jupiter

I haven't posted any links to images acquired by amateur astronomers lately, but trust me, Io is still there. Paul Haese acquired a couple of very nice views of Io transiting in front of Jupiter on May 10. The detail is good enough to easily make out the difference in brightness between the equatorial and polar regions. Christopher Go and Tomio Akutsu acquired several images of an Io transit on May 1.
