iPhone picture taken April 15th from central Illinois, USA.
Not bad, all things considered. A few days later, I acquired a Celestron Solar Sustem Imager camera.

Last night was a beautiful night to image Jupiter and it's moons. After I took low exposures to get more detail on Jupiter (1/625 seconds) I bumped it up to 1/10 seconds to get the moons.
I took the images with a Celestron 114 LCM 4.5" reflector and a Neximage Burst as the camera.
The image is 2000 frames and was stacked and processed with Registax 6.1.
Thank you and clear skies!
