Jupiter pictures by telescope in March 2012

In the photos above is Jupiter planet, wich are the best so far, although clips have not been processed in Registax yetIt is the planet on the evening of March 4, 2012, with its satellites. Images are reversed, as seen through the telescope. Are visible 4 moons of Jupiter: Io, Europa, Ganymede and Calisto. The latter one was discussed in another article: Callisto Jupiter's moon through my telescope (Video) in wich I shot this satellite closer with Sony CX 105 camera.

If you've wondered why Jupiter don't have phases such as lunar phases, and is always in full sunlight, it is because its orbit is further from the Sun than the Earth, and Jupiter's phase angle as is seen from Earth, does not exceed 11.5 °, unlike Venus, which has an orbit closer to the Sun than ours, and its disk is never seen in full light on Earth. Only during space missions have been obtained photos of Jupiter as a crescent.

Great photos! :) Thanks for share Victor!

I am just curious about this... why is Jupiter rotated? There's any scientific/technical explanation?
