Jupiter Phase One November 14th

I had thought up the idea before about using my Skywatcher Startravel 80 to capture Jupiter’s moons. I can rarely get them in the same field of view with my Maksutov and I’d managed to digitally combine a disc detail shot and moons shot to produce a composite. I started at 2155 GMT but broke off in the middle to do the 2200 zenith shot. The first shots suggested that one of the moons was in front of or behind the planet but later imaging runs showed all 4 moons.
