Callisto Jupiter's moon through my telescope (Video)

        Callisto (/ kəlɪstoʊ /, named after the greek mythological figure Callisto, Greek: Καλλιστώ) is a satellite of Jupiter.
It was discovered in 1610 by Galileo Galilei. It is the third moon of the whole solar system and the second largest of the Jupiter's Jovian system, after Ganymede. Callisto has about 99% of  Mercury's diameter, but only about a third of its mass. It is the fourth Galilean moon as distance from Jupiter, at an orbital radius of about 1,880,000 km.
