Jupiter and the Galilean satellites video through the telescope.

In this video I filmed Jupiter planet through telescope. Ganymede, Europa, Callisto and Io are satellites orbiting the planet on which we see in the first part of the video looking like bright pearls.

Jupiter is the largest planet in our Solar System. It is 2.5x larger than all the planets combined. Also, this planet has
most moons than any other planet, 67 in number discovered only till now.

The planet has four larger satellites: Io, Europa, Ganymede and Callisto which are named Galileans or main satellites, all of which may be seen in this video. They can be detected through a modest telescope and even through binoculars.

Images processed in Registax of this video, are here.
