Ganymede?

Hi,

I have been waiting patiently for the chance to see Jupiter and I had a very brief opportunity to view it on wed night/thurs morn 12.15am. Knowing that Uranus was in the same vacinity I tried to find it. I only had opportunity to use my 10x50 binos and what I saw looked just like a star. It was not visible with the naked eye and was at 7o'clock (I haven't worked out degrees etc yet!!). It clouded over pretty quickly so I put Stellarium on and tried to check whether what I had seen was Uranus but it appears that Uranus should have been to the right of Jupiter and it occured to me from 'zooming in' on Jupiter that it could have been Ganymede. I'm not sure they should appear through binos. Should I even be able to see them at all through 10x50's. Any ideas/advice?:)
