The seeing was particularly good on the 18th November 2011 for this image of Jupiter with three of its Galilean satellites. Ganymede is at upper left, Europa below and Io on the right. Callisto, was far out of the frame.

The image was made using a DMK mono video camera with a colour filter wheel on the LX200R 14" telescope. For each filter (R, G and B) a sequence of 30 seconds of video was taken at 15 fps . The video sequences were processed in Registax, Maxim DL and Photoshop. Notice that Europa moved a small amount between the Red and the Blue-filtered images. The Great Red Spot can be seen in the south equatorial belt
