On a clear night…

I took Valentina & Sally out in the driveway tonight for a little star gazing. I was able to see Jupiter and three of it’s moons, Aldebaran, and Pleiades.

Click on this and look at the largest version. You can see the three moons. It’s the best photo of Jupiter I’ve taken yet. I took these photos through my telescope using the camera on my cell phone.

Jupiter & 3 moons

Sterope, Taygeta, & Maia of Pleiades.


Alcyone, Merope, & Electra of Pleiades


I only managed to get a photo of six of the seven sisters; I missed Caleano. I also missed their parents, Atlas & Pleione.
