JUPITER NEAR GIBBOUS MOON


Clicked this on 5th October 2012 when Jupiter was nearly a degree away from the Gibbous moon. I took two shots with different exposures using my Canon 550D and Sky-Watcher 4" f/5 refractor, and then merged them using photoshop CS5. The telescope was used with EQ5 mount and single axis motor to avoid trails. If you look carefully then you can easily see the four Galilean Satellites of Jupiter!
