Using X-ray camera and diffractometer, structural evidence of the second CDW transition for the quasi two-dimensional conductor η-Mo4O11 was presented. CDW critical wave vectors have been determined with high precision. Extremely weak satellite reflections at the reduced wave vector q2=(0.552 0.47 0.30) emerge below 25 K. Satellite reflections at the reduced wave vector q1 = (0 0.232 0) was observed below 105 K.
