Hi everyone, 

Can anyone confirm (or refute) - have I imaged Ganymede and Europa in orbit around Jupiter or is that just wishful thinking? (Only equipment used was a Lumix G7 with 150mm zoom lens - effectively 300mm with 2x crop factor - and of course a tripod).

It appears to be the case and yet I can't quite allow myself to believe it...

Thanks from an old newbie.

You certainly have, well done!  If you can repeat the same shot over a series of nights you will see the orbital movement as well.  Astronomy can be quite dynamic sometimes!

Congratulations, watching the Moos ever changing positions is fascinating. As @GraemeC said astronomy can be very dynamic, nothing more so than the Galilean moons, perhaps maybe the surface/Proms of the Sun at times.

Thanks folks for the helpful input.

GraemeC - 'Twas a rare treat to have one cloudless night here in the north of the Emerald Isle* - several in a row would be nothing short of a miracle!

      Managed to get this Telescope as my first (second-hand for £40, hardly used). Just wondering best objects to aim to see (I got a cheap moon filter which is all I have really had a chance to spot in the night sky so far).
      Hoping as the hobby goes to invest in a more expensive one (any thoughts on next step up also welcome).
      I have only had a few goes with it so far and found the Azimuth mount to be easy to use, but there is a metal rod which you can turn to slightly alter (don't think this is moving across the equatorial) however you can only turn it so far before the thread at the top falls out (is that normal?).
      Any other random tips also welcome!

      Hi everyone,
      I'm looking to get a reasonably portable astrophotography set-up, using a 60-100mm refractor, with a suitable goto mount.  I spotted the Explore Scientifice exos2-gt with pmc-eight goto system, which looks like quite an elegant solution, and wondered if anybody in the forum owns this mount, and what they think of it's performance & usability?

      My son has said he would love to look at the stars and planets.
      ive looked at local sales but not sure which would be best for him to see planets & stars 
      any advice would be greatly appreciated £200 budget and happy to buy secondhand to get him a  telescope with stronger focus.
      2 for sale locally that look good but I know nothing !!

      I'm currently on my annual leave in Italy and the sky has been clear all day with no air turbulence.
      The telescope is out - of course - and I managed a session before dinner.
      I thought about sharing some photos taken with my phone and a couple of sketches.
