Brian comments..

This picture was captured on my Orion Starshoot Imager, with a run of 1 minute taking 600 frames and then aligning and stacking using “Registak” software.

In the same frame “Io” is peeking out from behind the planet, (just on the edge), at about 8 o’clock and about one jupiter diameter away is “Ganymede” on the same side. On the version I have sent you, Ganymede is dificult to see, but on the original it is clearer
