I tried to get an image @ 1400 UT on the 20th (midnight our time) when all four moons were at their greatest separation from our perspective but the skies were unkind. This was a shot from the following evening. 3" Celestron refractor with my digicam at 1/15s and f4.0. Filtered and levels adjusted in photoshop.

Hi Winensky.
Not a bad shot! I can't believe you used a 3" refractor and managed to get such a nice result. Did you use a focal reducer?
Cheers!

Thanks sevenspray. No, no reducer. I have sent you a post with more detail on the shot.

Kind regards
