One Moon? or Four??

Subtitled: “Fly me to the Moon… let me see what life is like on Jupiter and Mars….)”

I’ve been experimenting with my night sky photography a fair bit lately and finding that a bridge type camera has some limitations a true DSLR would probably handle better, but hey-ho. I does what i can with what i got (and what i got is a heck of a lot of value for da money!. 😉 )

So – the (one) Moon:

I also took two movies of Jupiter with the same camera (250X zoom!) around two weeks apart – you can clearly see how the moons revolve at different rates/positions around the planet and they prove that the smaller dots are not stars that are ‘fixed’, relative to us, in space.

The first one was taken last night, the same time as the still above while the second was taken in mid-March.
