Hello and thank you for reading. On August 28th 2010 i saw Jupiter in the sky. So i figured i would try to take a photo of the planet. I was surpized at what i saw. I seems i captured the planet with its four moons. I took this photo with a Nikon L110 coolpix camera. Please let me know what you think! Thanks!
Here is a link to the photo http://img832.imageshack.us/i/413201547 ... 17100.jpg/

Welcome to SDC.

Great first attempt.

Callisto, Io Jupiter, Europa & Ganymede in that order. You got them all. :)

Dunno why Ganymede appears so blue though???????

I was wondering about the Blue Ganymeade too. Otherwise OK

I took a pic of Jupiter and wanted to see the disc clearly, set my camera to capture a crisp disc of Jupiter, unfortunately the F number and expouse time wasn't able to capture the galilean moons.

What size lense would I need to see such a photo?
Could you be a little more specific ? The OP mentioned using a L110 camera but no telescope, so I'll guess he zoomed it to the max, making it the equivalent of a 420 mm lens (in 35 mm format terms), to take the picture.
