Jupiter and moons

Friday night sky

Took advantage of a few hours of clear sky to photograph
Jupiter and its moons as well as check up on the super nova in M82. The super nova is somewhat smaller than a month ago. From left to right the moons of Jupiter are Europa,
Io, and Ganymede. The shadow of Io can be seen on the surface of Jupiter. The Jupiter image is a composite of 2
separate images (Jupiter 1/15 sec. moons were 4 sec.). M82 is a stack of 20 separate 90-second exposures (ISO 1600).
Taken with a Meade AR6 refractor and Nikon DSLR. Stacking
software Deep Sky Stacker was used for M82.
