Jupiter and Moons

Jupiter and 6 Moons!

Jupiter is very low in the Southern sky at the moment, but very bright. It is actually between the bushes above my fence, which makes it difficult to image. This was taken about 10.30pm on the 1st August between the leaves of my bushes! If you look carefully (click image to enlarge) you can see Six of Jupiter's Moons. Look carefully for one very close just to the left of Jupiter itself.

Again, taken with the ST80 and Canon 350D attached. Single exposure of 20s @ iso 800.
