Jupiter with Ganymede and its shadow

Jupiter with Ganymede and its shadow

I decided to take a quick look at Jupiter and was surprised to see the clear sharp shadow of a moon and the Great Red Spot with Callisto, Europa, Io, Jupiter and Ganymede all lined up. With the Barlows and camera on the axial port it was picture time. Questar 3.5" with 2x2x Dakin Barlows and Sony NEX-5N for 1/4 sec at ISO 400. 71 of 110 images stacked in Nebulosity and sharpened in Lynkeos, with post Photoshop. Questar 3.5" with 2x2x Dakin Barlows and Sony NEX-5N for 1/4 sec at ISO 400.
