Moons of Jupiter

When I got my new Celestron Sky Master binos for Christmas the first thing I absolutely couldn’t wait to see was the moons of Jupiter.  I took my new toy out to the field next to my house and set up the tripod and looked upon a strange new world with my own eyes for the first time!  It was a spectacular sight to say the least!  This picture is not mine, I don’t have the money for astrophotographpy yet.  The picture comes from http://www.tomsastroblog.com, but it is the exact same view that I saw through my binos on Christmas night 2011.
