"New" Pictures from 2012. Jupiter through a telescope.

634 frames at 75% best quality in Registax.

The easiest way to look at Jupiter's moons through the telescope, are so-called "Galilean moons" Europe, Io, Ganymede and Callisto. I did not found on the internet pictures of the other even smaller satellites made ​​by ground-based telescopes because they are too small to be detected. Jupiter has a large number of satellites, counting of 67 discovered so far. 51 of them have a diameter smaller than 10 km.
