How to observe Jupiter (Video)-Jupiter through my telescope

In this video there are several images of the planet Jupiter (142.984 km), stabilized in Sony Vegas 10. Each piece of the film is processed in Registax already.

Remember that on December 3, 2011, Jupiter will be in opposition, and this period will be the best for observing and photographing the planet. This happens when the Sun, Earth and the planet are aligned and the planet's  face is fully illuminated (as a "full Moon").

In opposition, the planet is at its maximum brightness (magnitude -2.5), and its satellites.
Jupiter has 63 known moons, four of which were discovered by Galileo Galilei (Galilean satellites). They are Io (3.643 km), Europe (3.122 km), Ganymede (5.262 km) şi Callisto (4.820 km), in order of their distance from the planet.

Jupiter observation does not require a telescope. Even with binoculars you can see the planet and its satellites on the left and right . To observe the surface of Jupiter, you need at least a telescope mirror of 5 "(12.7 cm) diameter.
