Last night was a glorious Winter night. Jupiter was at Zenith and the seeing was great. I pulled out my 9 Dobsonian and took several afocal shots through a 25 mm Plossl eyepiece. I selected the best one and got a reasonable image of the planet and the 4 largest moons. I processed the moons and the planet separately using Microsoft Picture-It. The moons are ( from bottom to top) , Callisto, Ganymede, Io and Europa.
