I am still working on getting the perfect photo of Jupiter with my small telescope. It may not get much better than this. This photo was taken a week ago. Or rather, I should say “these photos” were taken a week ago.
The photo of Jupiter itself is made up of six separate exposures overlaid with one and another in Photoshop. The seventh exposure is the four Galilean moons Jupiter: Io, Europa, Ganymede, and Callisto. They were all on the same side of Jupiter as seen from Earth. The largest moon is Ganymede but I don’t know which of the others is which.
Clouds rolled in at about midnight and that was the end of that.
You should be able to see the moons with binoculars.Share
