Moon at 3:30am Saturday

First clear sky of Spring

Took this shot of the moon Saturday morning at 3:45am using
an Explore Scientific 5 inch refractor (ED127)and a Nikon
DSLR D3000. Exposure time was 1/80 second ISO 200. The
image of Jupiter was a combined image of Jupiter and its moons doing eyepiece Projection (1/10 sec. for Jupiter and 6
seconds for the moons). The moons of Jupiter from left to
right were: Europa, Ganymede and Callisto. IO was actually
moving across the face of Jupiter at the time. The
shadow of IO moving across Jupiter could be seen from 10:48pm to 11:48pm. Still need to process those videos.
Seeing conditions were "average".
