Hi Brian,

That's well captured with good detail. You've captured the moons realy well with good shape too.
All the best

Dear Brian,
That is a fantastic amount of detail for a 5 inch scope.
Also lovely colours.
And fine moons also.

I saw Jupiter's moons earlier than your photo and was surprised to glimpse Callisto in 18x50 IS binocular. with the sky not yet dark, i.e. still twilight.

Regards, David

Nice pictures. I looked at Jupiter last night. I don't think I have ever seen the moons configured like that with one directly below. It was a great view.
