Moon with Jupiter & its Galilean Moons

A HDR composite image of the waxing gibbous Moon with Jupiter and its four Galilean moons. Sony a7iii at prime focus of a William Optics RedCat 51 250mm f/4.9 telescope. Taken from Austin, Texas, on 2020-08-29 04:03UT. Saturn was further away to the left. I traded it for enough focal length to resolve the Galilean moons. The ghostly trees are our crepe myrtle and yaupon holly. Follow linked image below for a full sized image to see the Galilean moons.

Exposures range from 1/100 sec at ISO 100 for the Moon and 0.3 sec at ISO 800 for the trees. Best 8 of 80 lunar exposures stacked in Autostakkert and deconvolved in Lynkeos. HDR stacking, final crop, and exposure adjustments in Photoshop.
