Jupiter and some of his moons

Tonight I imaged Jupiter and some of his moons - a relatively bright spot in the sky - with my DMK31AU03.AS "The Image Source" camera. This was the first time I saw Jupiter through a telescope. Fantastic! First I could not believe that the other bright spots around are some of his moons! Unfortunately I too excited to note down the camera setting this time... 🙂

One of the images below has been taken without a barlow lens and one with a 2x Powermate TeleVue barlow lens. For stacking the images I used the Registax tool. Last updated: December 20, 2015 at 17:42 pm
